[Insert clever name for a Toronto queer book club

My many searches have turned up no queer book club in Toronto.  So here it is.

I'm hoping for suggestions about the following things:

Ok, we need a name!  Whatcha got?

(Suggestions for new icons also appreciated!)

Where do we meet?

When do we meet?

What books would we like to read and discuss?  Should we make an effort to read new, emerging stuff, or start with some old standards?

I was thinking it'd be a good idea to get a reading schedule together, meet about once a month, talk about the new book, and we'd already know what the next book coming up is at that time - so basically, to get us started, we need a book to talk about in August and one for September, and we'll decide October's book in August.

My other suggestion is that we would all touch base via LJ with a few things to think about with regard to the book being discussed, not to formalize the discussion, but just to kind of get it started online and give everyone's thinker a kickstart.

Ok, so drop a comment, introduce yourself, and let's talk when, where, and what!

Hey everyone,

was glad to hear of this group from a friend (notaprettygrrl). I used to be in a queer women's bookclub in Calgary, and miss the literary directions it used to provide me. It's been fun just reading people's suggestions here (I really enjoyed Tipping the Velvet, and had/have an insane crush on Lyndell of Taste This, so would recommend either of them).

I live way in the north end of town, so location doesn't really matter to me - I'll be travelling no matter where it is!

So... has Drag king Dreams been decided upon?
