It’s time to Queer Up This Summer! #throwbackthursday #backlistspotlight

A year ago about now, we were launching!


As gay as a Western rodeo? You bet. A Queer Summer Night in Cowtown riffs off the urban Stampede YYC plays host to every July, and features 10 hot and cold queer shorts for the 10 days of the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. This fourth collaborative project by YYC Queer Writers features 10 original stories, including:

  • On the Floor by Alyssa Linn Palmer
  • Voyeur by Dirk Van Dyk (debut)
  • On the Range by Dallas Barnes
  • Coming by PW Zellie
  • The Steward of the Treaty 7 Sodium Forest by Beatrice Aucoin
  • Hawk’s Eye by Karen O.
  • After Care by T
  • First Rodeo by Lotis Cervantes
  • You, and the Herds by Callan Field
  • Dhakira by M. Jane Colette

+  photography from Leslie Pringle, Callan Field, and Shannon MacKinnon.

All profits from the anthology’s sales go to benefit Alberta’s Camp Fyrefly.

Camp fYrefly is a summer camp and leadership retreat  designed for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-identified, two-spirited, intersexed, queer, and questioning youth, (LGBTQ2S+) and planned in part by a committee of the same youth it seeks to serve. Camp fYrefly  is designed to help youth develop the leadership skills and personal resiliency necessary for them to become agents for positive change in their schools, families, and communities. In a word, it helps keep queer kids alive.

WARNING: Although we are fundraising for a youth program, the content of our anthology contains mature themes, frequently of a sexual nature, and is intended for an adult audience.




Done with the back list? You know i had a hot new TRILOGY releasing this spring, right? All three books now live!
