Queer Horror Book Club

Queers and horror have always gone hand in manicured hand. We know what it means to be made into a monster, all while navigating the true life terrors of conversion therapy and gender reveal parties. This queer horror book club will explore queerness from the magic to the truly macabre. In honor of Pride Month, we'll be reading The Z Word by Lindsay King-Miller. (Use promo code YIKES to save 10% at checkout.)

From Firestorm collective member and book club host Esme: I remember my first Pride jump-scare, a cute sorority girl in sparkly booty shorts handed me a complimentary Red Bull, crooning something about getting wings to fly through the parade. Yikes! Many of us have come to regard June with a mixture of anticipation and trepidation (a duality fitting of Gemini season). Every year it gets harder to revel in revolutionary possibility of Pride while keeping the corporate vultures at bay.

Join us this June to discuss this fraught celebration, pink-washing, pandemic apathy, and of course, ZOMBIES!
