Last month I had a chance to take in the queer hip hop dance party Swagger Like Us at El Rio in San Francisco. I had an amazing time and I’ve been meaning to give it a shout out for weeks now and I realized today that a month has passed and it’s time for another party today, Sunday, November 3, beginning at 3pm!

Here’s a cool and inclusive event that you don’t see every day. You can click on the graphic to enlarge the flyer. I’ve also posted this web flyer on our Events page. If you have a gay event that you’d like promoted on QL just send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Nathan at email@example.com for consideration. Thanks and Happy Hump Day!
I saw this today while browsing the Cantu Queer Center web page today. The Queer Center is the GLBTI Center on campus at UC Santa Cruz.

This weekend, from Friday the 24th to Sunday the 26th of August, the new Queer Lit-oriented site Rainbow Book Reviews is hosting a Blog Hop fêteing GLBTQ literature and the people who write it. Authors (including this one) will ruminate on the question, “What does writing GLBTQ literature mean to me?,” and Rainbow Book Reviews, several GLBTQ publishers, and individual authors (including this one) are handing out goodies. So hop around a bit this weekend. Support a new queer site; meet some queer writers; make a friend, become a fan, or win a prize!
