"QUEER CRIPS" Gets a Sendoff


On 22 November 2003 the Hormel Center at the San Francisco Public Library hosted a reading and reception to celebrate the publication of "Queer Crips: Disabled Gay Men and Their Stories," the first anthology of writing by and about gay men with disabilities.

Above, editors JOHN R. KILLACKY (L) and BOB GUTER show off the prize.

We are indebted to Jim Van Buskirk and Marti Goddard of the San Francisco Public LIbrary for making the "QC" book launch a huge success.

Ask your local independent bookstore to stock "Queer Crips," order it from any standard online source, or directly from the publisher, Haworth Press.
