Inside and Out

Inside and Out was The Center for Fiction’s Pride Month 2020 series designed to offer solace and affirmation to the LGBTQ+ community during a time of isolation from trusted social groups and support networks. Featuring a phenomenal line-up of authors whose books center the unique experiences of queer characters, conversations explored how sexuality and gender identity intersect with race, class, religion, and nationality.

We invite you to explore the series below, which reflects our ongoing celebration of Pride and commitment to the LGBTQ+ community.
