LGBTQ+ Book Club HeaderHello! Last week we had our first Book Club meet up of the year and it was our biggest yet which is so amazing! It was lovely to see faces old and new joining us to chat all things queer, specifically Girl Mans Up by M-E Girard. It’s a contemporary YA book that follows Pen, a queer protagonist who is struggling mainly with how others see her. She describes herself as ‘queer’ and a quote on the back of the book describes her as a genderqueer character but I’m hesitant to label specifically as Pen never labels herself. Read on for some opinions on this month’s book and to find out our February read. Continue reading “LGBTQ+ Book Club – January 2020”
