Hello and welcome!
Inqueering Minds Book Club explores the beauty and complexity of LGBTQI+ literature. The books provide but a small glimpse into a rich world of queer perspectives; perspectives that have continually pushed boundaries, imagined new futures, and insisted on the potentiality and concrete possibility of another world.
We traverse a wide range of genres, including poetry, short stories, anthologies, philosophical works, novels, essays, and auto-theory. Suggestions of some neat books to read are, of course, always welcome!
Join us on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm for a discussion of these extraordinary texts over some drinks and snacks. Jimmy looks forward to seeing you there!

FEBRUARY ZOOM MEETING
Meeting ID: 641 890 044
We pay our respects to the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora nation, on whose lands we meet. We recognise they never ceded sovereignty or authority to any state or corporate entity. If we're living in so-called Australia, we're living on Aboriginal land.
This is a safer spaces event and all voices are welcome. If you need some support or want to check in with someone, please see the hosts.
Meetings are at Better Read Than Dead on King St, Newtown. The space is well-lit and quiet, and located upstairs (with functioning elevator access). The bookshop is accessible by train (Newtown station) or buses along King St. There is no designated parking, but several side streets in the vicinity have space to pull up and drop off / pick up. If you have specific access requirements, please get in touch!
Fellow book-clubber Julie Regan has created a brilliant PDF resource for great LGBTQIA+ reads! A link to the editable google doc can be located here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IIc9i9u7zTk7Wc2qNe2h8Xz1ydPhZNygR52a73SAEdg/edit?fbclid=IwAR0MfTqeamc23CEg-2uXT84L8xrp3CuZ9pKSHrsLeIRHJwCWu-Ka9K3KAP8
