James Lecesne, founder of The Trevor Project and author of Trevor: A Novella, will be hosting Queer in America at 92nd Street Y, a night dedicated to how writers are trying to make a better life for LGBT youth.
Queer in America brings together some of the best voices in writing, including Laurie Rubin (Do You Dream in Color?, Seven Stories Press), Amy Bloom (Come to Me, HarperCollins), Michael Cunningham (The Hours, Picador), Paul Rudnick (I Hate Hamlet), and Brian Selznick (The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Scholastic Press), to discuss how they are working towards a better and more accepting place for LGBT youth. After a screening of Lecesne’s award-winning documentary Trevor, the authors will be reading their own letters from The Letter Q: Queer Writers’ Notes to Their Young Selves.
Join James Lecesne and all of the outstanding and award-winning authors for this one of a kind event.

Chavisa Wood’s debut novel The Albino Album is bold exploration of the intersections of race, class, and sexuality, and contemplates the relationships between political action, art and romance, as our heroine tries on a series of bewitchingly fantastical families looking for the place to call home.
Woods is a Brooklyn-based lesbian writer, artist, and activist, and recipient of the 2009 Jerome Foundation Award for emerging writers. Her debut collection of short stories, Love Does Not Make Me Gentle or Kind, was a Lambda Literary Award Finalist for Debut Fiction.

AA: Lots of queer and trans women have said good things to me about the game, which is ultimately the thing I want most from my games: To make a space in games culture for other queer women to feel safe raising their voices, to get other queers and pervos excited about game creation. GG: What's the one thing you want people--LGBT or otherwise--to get out of playing this game? AA: A big fat orgasm.
