[Insert clever name for a Toronto queer book club


I was so excited when I found this community but sad to see that no one seems to post.

I'm wondering if other theory types would like to get together to discuss some queer literature or something along the lines of feminist theory, post colonial and disability studies. I have an MA in critical disability studies and work in a University but I still crave a group of folks to regularly meet and talk about a set piece of work in Toronto.

Anyone interested? Or, do you have any other ideas?

Hi guys! I'm looking for a book club and was directed here by others I asked, though am noting with some sadness that there hasn't been an update here for a while! Did anything ever come of this? If it hasn't, might it yet?

Just for personal interest and reading... [Aug. 15th, 2006|08:43 am]

I've been struggling with the gender binary, not necessarily in myself, but as a societal construct and a limited cage where only two can exist. So I was hoping to do some reading, and wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

So, apart from:
Feinberg and

who should I be reading?

That list I was promising to post... [Jul. 13th, 2006|07:28 pm]

Hay all y'all, here's the list of "New G&L Books" put out by the Toronto Public Library (TPL). Some of them are repeats from my previous comment regarding recommended reading but they're a start nonetheless... I've separated them as they are separated in the brochure, mainly because it makes the lists unwieldy if they're all together.

If anyone has any comments on any of the materials, as in they'd like to read them, that would be great--or if you've heard something is a disaster and should be left on the shelves, let us know and I will revise the list. 

Looking forward to your suggestions...

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!
