The Little Gay Book Club

The Little Gay Book Club is an all-inclusive, queer-centric book club.

We are creating a community of booklovers and bibliophiles to share our passion for reading through conversations, monthly meetings, and events.

For frequently asked questions and more information about the club, keep reading! 

Why did you start a book club?
We have a huge community of queer readers who are looking to create further connections, have conversation, be inspired, and expand their way of thinking. As a book shop, it made sense to be an arbiter of those connections through a book club. 

How does it work?
Each month we will pick a book that will be our focus. We will have various in-person and virtual meetings with smaller groups to discuss what we read, share our ideas, and meet new people. We have four membership tiers depending on varying interest and resources. BUT, for those who want to participate, but are unable to afford it, we developed a mutual readers fund to help offset or completely cover the cost of books and membership. 

What platforms do you use to communicate?
The primary modes of communication will be through email and through our book club channel on Discord. 

Why charge at all?
Our goal with the club is to be able to make it sustainable to organize and facilitate. With that we need to raise some funds through it to pay staff. We hope the perks we've included with the different memberships make it fun and approachable. We also have a free and reduced option available through our mutual readers fund. 

How do I apply to the Mutual Readers Fund?
Need help covering the cost of a book? Need a reduced membership? We've got you covered. Fill out this form to let us know what you need and we will be in touch. 

What are you doing about Covid-19? 
We know the pandemic is an ever-changing situation and we will continue to adapt our offerings depending on the current risk. As of now, we will offer an outdoor (in-person) and virtual option. For the in-person offering, we encourage masks and do our best to space people out and reduce the group size to reduce the risk as much as possible.
