The Atlanta Queer Literary Festival and the Special Collections Department of the Atlanta-Fulton County Library team up to present a day of readings to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which ushered in the gay rights movement in America. Readings will take place on Saturday, June 27, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Central Library in Downtown. I'll be hosting and performing in the afternoon.
