Join Words Without Borders on Tuesday, July 2 at Unnameable Books for a reading of queer writing from around the world, in celebration of the 10th edition of our annual Queer Issue. The event will be hosted by Jeremy Tiang with readings by Tiang, Claudia Salazar Jiménez, Amanda Lee Koe, John Keene, and other writers to be announced.

Drinks will follow at Soda Bar.

Date: Tuesday, July 2, 2019, 6:30PM–8:30PM

Free and open to the public.

From 2010-2019, the Queer Issue has given a platform to 89 queer writers from 48 countries writing in 32 different languages, from Arabic to Serbian to Spanish to Thai. Many of these writers were given their first exposure to English-language readers in this issue, and some are not free to discuss their queerness in their home countries or languages.

Help us close out Pride month with a celebration of this milestone. Refreshments will be available. After the reading, there will be an afterparty at Soda Bar across the street.

All proceeds will be donated to All Out, an organization fighting for international queer rights.
