Queer Home CookOUT Tour
August 9 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Please note, this event has been moved to Switchback Brewing Company so that it can be held outdoors!
Foglifter, the San Francisco Bay Area’s premier non-profit LGBTQ+ literary arts press, announces
the Burlington leg of Queer Home CookOUT Tour. Foglifter road trips across the country to collaborate with local
bookstores and the contributing writers of the Home is Where You Queer Your Heart anthology in their own
hometowns for a reading. These contributors have invited a roster of local queer and trans talent to celebrate the
anthology's themes of chosen family and community. Phoenix Books will sell the anthology and participating author
books at the event, as well. Featured readers include Miah Jeffra, Saul Lelchuk, Holly Painter, Baruch Porras-Hernandez, Alison Prine, Chris
Vaccaro and other special guests. All tour events are free and open to the public.
Home is Where You Queer Your Heart anthologizes contemporary queer writers and artists creatively thinking
through the complex and fluid realities of home in the U.S. and abroad. Curated during the 2020 U.S. presidential
election and the COVID-19 pandemic, as the culture shifts into a new normal—and many queer people feel their
nation has further precluded them from a place of comfort—poets, essayists, storytellers, and artists remind us that it
is at our kitchen tables, in our bedrooms, on our porches that make us who we are.
