Watch December’s Violet Hour

It’s hard to believe that this was only two months ago, but in early December 2021 I hosted my first in-person Violet Hour in almost two years. Fierté littéraire had invited me to present a series of readings for their Salon du livre 2LGBTQIA+, and I was thrilled to once again be onstage with writers with new books.

In this video, you can hear me reading from The Family Way (I finally got to wear my “Free Dad Hugs” shirt that I had bought when I thought I’d be able to do real-world events). Joining me onstage were Sami Basbous (Heal the Boy), Marusya Bociurkiw (Food Was her Country: The Memoir of a Queer Daughter), Helen Chau Bradley (Personal Attention Roleplay), and Eli Tareq El Bechelany Lynch (The Good Arabs). Enjoy!
