Home is Where You Queer Your Heart
Home is Where You Queer Your Heart anthologizes contemporary queer writers and artists creatively thinking through the complex and fluid realities of home in the U.S. and abroad. Curated during the 2020 U.S. presidential election and the COVID-19 pandemic, as the culture shifts into a new normal—and many queer people feel their nation has further precluded them from a place of comfort—poets, essayists, storytellers, and artists remind us that it is at our kitchen tables, in our bedrooms, on our porches that make us who we are.
Edited by Miah Jeffra, Monique Mero-Williams and Arisa White, the anthology features Kazim Ali, K-Ming Chang, Jubi Arriola-Headley, Kay Ulanday Barrett, Rajiv Mohabir, Donika Kelly, Jason Villemez, Joy Priest, Yanyi, t’ai freedom ford, Marlin Jenkins, Airea D Matthews, sam sax, Christopher Soto, and so many more LGBTQ+ authors.
Foglifter Press is supported by the generosity of the California Arts Council, San Francisco Arts Commission, Horizons Foundation, and Zellerbach Family Foundation. Foglifter was also recently awarded the Whiting Foundation’s Literary Magazine Prize.
