Reading with contributors of "Every True Pleasure: LGBTQ Tales of North Carolina"

  • CostFree

Some of North Carolina's finest fiction and nonfiction writers are represented in Every True Pleasure. It features writers who identify as gay, trans, bisexual, and straight. Their stories and essays view the full spectrum of contemporary LGBTQ life. These writers, all native or connected to North Carolina, show the multifaceted challenges and joys of LGBTQ life, including young love and gay panic, the minefield of religion, military service, having children with a surrogate, family rejection, and finding one's true gender. One of the only anthologies of its kind, Every True Pleasure speaks with insight and compassion about living LGBTQ in North Carolina and beyond.

Several of the contributors will also be joining us.  

Contributors include Jasmine Beach-Ferrara, Brian Blanchfield, Belle Boggs, Emily Chavez, Garrard Conley, John Pierre Craig, Diane Daniel, Allan Gurganus, Minrose Gwin, Aaron Gwyn, Wayne Johns, Randall Kenan, Kelly Link, Zelda Lockhart, Toni Newman, Michael Parker, Penelope Robbins, David Sedaris, Eric Tran, and Alyssa Wong.
