About the Event

Join us for a queer book-themed speed dating event! Queer speed dating is about more than finding a potential love match. We're here to find community in all its forms. Name tags will be provided so you can include your pronouns and what type of relationship you are looking for.

Our book of the month for September is World Running Down by Al Hess

A transgender salvager on the outskirts of a dystopian Utah gets the chance to earn the ultimate score and maybe even a dash of romance. But there's no such thing as a free lunch…

There are two options for purchasing tickets for the event:

  1. Buy a copy of the book of the month from the store (our affiliate links on and count, but please note that not all books are available on those platforms) to gain entry to the event. 
  2. If you already own the book, purchase an event ticket which is set on a sliding scale starting at $5. The recommended ticket price is $10. Discounted tickets are limited, so please use them fairly. Purchasing tickets online is strongly recommended. 

Claiming a Free Book

Thanks to a generous donation, we are able to provide three free copies of the book of the month EACH MONTH! If you are interested in receiving a free copy, fill out this form. We are prioritizing BIPOC, disabled, and trans readers for these free copies. You may apply for free books each month, but we will prioritize new individuals.

Read at least part of the book so you have something to chat about with your potential matches!
