Join us around the world as we read Amelia’s journey around the Western world and the vastly different experiences and rights of the LGBTQIA+ communities. Join her as she cries at the first same-sex marriage in Britain, loses herself in the world’s biggest drag convention in L.A., marches at Pride parades across Europe, visits both a transgender model agency and the Anti-Violence Project in New York to understand the extremes of trans life today, parties in the clubs of Turkey’s underground LGBTQ+ scene, and meets a genderless family in progressive Stockholm.
How can we build an inclusive society in which everyone is valued and respected, no matter a person’s gender identity or sexual orientation? Together, we’ll read about LGBTQIA+ issues, discrimination, intersectionality, and the long road that must still be paved for many people to be themselves.
Every Book Club that we’ve organized at Xenolearn strives to both educate and empower. That’s why we will donate 50% of the proceeds to the LGBTQIA+ organization, Colored Qollective.
