Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"As rough-hewn and gorgeous as the city that inspired it, this anthology breaks queer ground as it shows us that everywhere is Portland — but Portland is its own special place, home to queers seeking and finding home, from the city itself to each others' arms." Daphne Gottlieb, author of Kissing Dead Girls

Synopsis:

At once a love letter to the Rose City and a dream of escape, the first-person narratives of Portland Queer reveal the contradictions and commonalities of life on one of the worldas great queer meccas. A waiter falls in love with a straight guy from the cafe next door. A young dyke discovers gay karaoke at the Silverado. A pregnant man prepares for new life transitions. An ambitious teenager finds her tribe at St. Maryas Academy. A closet-case is confronted by his wife. And a video-game addict takes a chance on love. These stories (and more) come together to show that Portland is a place like no otherabut also a place like all others, where radical, queer life exists everywhere in the margins.
