Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At once a love letter to the Rose City and a dream of escape, the first-person narratives ofPortland Queer reveal the contradictions and commonalities of life in one of the worlds great queer meccas. A waiter falls in love with a straight guy from the café 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. Marys Academy. A closet-case is confronted by his wife. And a video-game addict takes a chance on love.

Review:

Daphne Gottlieb, author of Kissing Dead Girls
