    Announcement: Season Three is Coming!

    Dear listeners,
    A Story Most Queer is borrowing just a couple of minutes from your day to share an announcement.
    We're currently working on Season Three of the show. That's a brand new season of pocket-sized queer stories, for everyone!
    The most important piece of our show is getting stories from queer writers from all walks of life, and so we are asking you all to share our call to a wider internet audience.
    Interested parties should check out our FAQ here: http://astorymostqueer.mischiefmedia.com/faq/
    and, when ready, can submit their stories through our form here: https://airtable.com/shrgw5vmsn73edit4 
    We're hoping that with a little steam, we'll be able to launch the new season in the next month or two, and will update everyone once we have a more definite timeline!
    Thanks so much for always being amazing - our audience may be small but it's so very mighty! And we appreciate the heck out of all of you.

    S2 Bonus: Reading and Supporting Black Queer Authors

    S2 Bonus: 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.

Luna Roosevelt ,

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
