Sexuality: Gay and Lesbian Book Club Roundup (December)
Event Details: Gay and Lesbian Book Club Roundup (December) - :

Click on “Read more…”, and you’ll find fiction! Nonfiction! Classics! Comedy! A graphic novel! Fewer exclamation points!
Thanks to my dear friend Jonathan, who correctly pointed out that my linking books to their Amazon.com pages is an evil thing to do. Because Amazon, as you may know, is evil (perhaps this is a topic for another column). Starting with this roundup, all my book references in all my columns will link to that book’s Lambda Rising page (or the page of a similar independent bookseller).
As always, all the clubs listed here welcome new members at any time, and you’re under no obligation to go to every meeting in order to be a member.
And finally: If you like to complain that there’s no gay life in this area outside of bars and clubs, and you aren’t giving at least one of these book clubs a try, would you get up off your ass and go already?
