This month I was approached by Jaimie Cudmore of Literacy Quebec to talk with her about the need for creating spaces for queer literature in the city. It was the first time I’ve been asked any questions on the subject, and I (surprisingly) found I had a lot to say. It’s interesting when someone else makes you think about the work you’re doing in a more critical way. I could’ve talked to her for hours, but thankfully (for listeners) it’s only 30 minutes.
If you are interested in the origins of the Violet Hour, or the desire to create alternative spaces for literature, then listen to the interview below.
