    Reading and Supporting Black Queer Authors

    Reading and Supporting Black Queer Authors

    This isn’t a standard episode - instead it’s but a miniscule sampling of queer works by black queer authors. We want to highlight them. There’s no need to press play, unless you want to listen to these titles and authors being read aloud. We just wanted to get your attention.
     
    To begin, all links are through http://bookshop.org - an organization that allows you to order online and support your local indie bookstore. We suggest also looking to see if your purchase can support a black owned bookseller or initiative.

    23. The Other Women

    23. The Other Women

    A woman is haunted by her body image—or the image she has of her skinnier body. Everywhere she goes she is followed by this double. Work, gym classes, and doctors appointments, her thinner self misses none of it. All the while her wife is expressing a desire to start a family. As the prospect of becoming pregnant becomes more real, will this second body disappear?

AMAZING short stories

What a fantastic pod! The stories are wide-ranging and really interesting, and I love that they're highlighting queer authors in general. The Queering Borders story made me cry. EVERYONE SHOULD LISTEN
