"Queer Voices radiates with the diverse truths, struggles, and ecstatic genius of Minnesota's LGBTQIA+ community. The warmth cast from its pages will melt any preconception you might have had, leaving you with new and beautiful wisdom in its wake." Stewart Van Cleveauthor of Land of 10,000 Loves: A History of Queer Minnesota "This is a living document. A live place where love is recalled, the dead are remembered, and the varied vibrancy of the LGBTQIA+ writers of Minnesota comes to join your life and remind you of the texture, the tension, the trouble of being who we are and accepting whoever we are becoming. This work should be taught locally and nationally, used in groups and programs for people of many ages and with many missions." Alexis Pauline Gumbs, author of M Archive: After the End of the World "This beautiful and vivid collection of prose and poetry offers real insight into the complex realities of LGBTQIA+ life in Minnesota in the twenty-first century. Queer Voices also stands as a testament to the power of a creative community to foster talent and advocate for social change." Kevin P. Murphy, co-editor of Queer Twin Cities "This splendid collection, by writers hailing from one of the nation's most enduring queer reading series, is broadly diverse and soaringly intersectional, establishing the depth and excruciating beauty of the Minneapolis-St. Paul LGBTQIA+ community. Open these pages for the radically clear and queer-eyed words we all need to keep on reading." Barrie Jean Borich, author of Apocalypse, Darling
