Mark your calendars, Columbus, Ohio book lovers!
Samantha Allen, author of Real Queer America: LGBT Stories from Red States is coming to Two Dollar Radio Headquarters on Monday, September 30th. Doors open at 8pm and the discussion/book signing starts at 8:30pm.
I’m super excited because I helped organize the event. I’ve read Real Queer America and it’s one of my favorites of 2019!
REAL QUEER AMERICA: LGBT Stories from Red States (Little, Brown) might just be the uplifting, get-to-work kick in the pants we need. With the motto “something gay every day,” trans journalist Samantha Allen takes us along on a road trip through red states, inviting readers to join in a celebration of queer life and activism in places where the choice to live as you are is a part of the daily fight. The result is an eye-opening and joyful book that challenges the storyline of queer life in America by showing the real, on-the-ground demographic changes underway.
Samantha Allen is a GLAAD Award-winning journalist and the author of Love & Estrogen (Amazon Original Stories). She is a senior reporter for The Daily Beast covering LGBT issues and a former Sex + Life reporter for Fusion. She received her Ph.D. in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from Emory University in 2015 and was the 2013 recipient of the Kinsey Institute's John Money Fellowship for Scholars of Sexology. She has appeared on MSNBC, CNN, and NPR's On the Media. She met her wife in a Kinsey Institute elevator--a true queer love story.
I hope to see you there!
