About the Event

About the Book Club

This book club is open to all, with the goal of centering queer and disabled experiences. You don't need to consider yourself an "activist" to join, though much of the discussion of the books will focus on specific lessons we can apply to today.

While many forms of community care are needed, this book club aims to provide a space for deepening our historical and political analysis of queer-informed health justice to empower communities in ongoing and future pandemics, while grounding in queer and disabled histories and wisdom.

The reading list will include histories, memoirs, and analysis of the HIV-AIDS pandemic, foundational texts by queer disabled authors, and lenses on queer health justice.

The Pandemic Political Education book club meets at 7 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month and discusses a different book.
