The ATL LGBTQ+ Book Club is a group for Atlanta's LGBTQ+ folks and allies to read queer-themed books and books by queer authors! We aim to have diverse thought-provoking discussions about queer identity, history, and topical issues. For the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, our book club, which normally meets at Charis Books & More, will meet online via zoom. All are welcome to join!
