Philly Aids Thrift @ Giovanni's Room

queerbook is the culmination of Philly AIDS Thrift @ Giovanni’s Room’s first-ever writing contest. At the beginning of this year, we invited members of our community to submit work for our writing contest with the ultimate goal of publishing an anthology, as well as hosting a release party event where all the authors in the book would be invited to do a reading. Obviously with COVID-19, that plan has changed a bit, but we are still here and proud to present queerbook as a collection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from members of our store’s community from all over the world. Featuring over 30 writers, as well as an introduction from one of the founders of Giovanni’s Room, this book reflects our pasts, presents, and futures: it is a snapshot of our current moment — our hopes, dreams and fears in a quickly changing world.
