QUEER BETWEEN THE COVERS, Montreal’s annual queer bookfair (August 17)

QUEER BETWEEN THE COVERS, Montreal’s annual queer bookfair, is almost upon us!
Join us:
August 17th, 12-6 PM
Comité social Centre-Sud
1710 rue Beaudry
Free entry, wheelchair-accessible venue.

Books and zines and snacks!
QBtC aims to provide access to queer materials that are otherwise unavailable in the city, as well as draw attention to queer cultural production.
This bookfair, now in its sixth year, began as an initiative of Qteam, a radical queer collective in the city, and is now an autonomous project. It happens each August, as part of an alternative Pride event called Pervers/cité, a radical response to the continued commercialization and de-politicization of mainstream pride events in the city.
The bookfair attracts hundreds of people each year, and brings together both local and national independent bookstores, publishers, zinesters, authors, and community groups.
Queer Between the Covers is organized by a collective of volunteers based in Montreal, with the support of QPIRG Concordia. The collective also maintains a year-round queer and trans book and zine distro and puts on book launches and other smaller events every few months. We are always looking for new people to get involved.
If you would like to volunteer for the bookfair, please send us a message here, or at our email: queerbetweenthecovers@gmail.com. Follow us on Twitter @queerbookfair and stay tuned for updates through FB!
