Portland Queer: Tales of the Rose Cityby Ariel Gore
Synopses & Reviews
"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
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.
