“Home is Where You Queer Your Heart anthologizes contemporary queer writers and artists creatively thinking through the complex and fluid realities of home in the U.S. and abroad. Curated during the 2020 U.S. presidential election and the COVID-19 pandemic, as the culture shifts into a new normal-and many queer people feel their nation has further precluded them from a place of comfort-poets, essayists, storytellers, and artists remind us that it is at our kitchen tables, in our bedrooms, on our porches that make us who we are”
The anthology explores the complex and varied meanings of ‘home’ through poetry, prose and hybrid forms from LGBTQ+ authors around the country, informed by the need and desire to create ‘chosen families’ and how those can be disrupted and inspired by gentrification, displacement, discrimination and disease. In other words, this is an anthology for our wacky times. Edited by Miah Jeffra, Monique Mero-Williams and Arisa White, the anthology features Kazim Ali, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Marcelo Hernandez Castillo, Donika Kelly, Dorothy Chan, Joy Priest, sam sax, and 60+ other fabulous queer and trans writers.
