Reading Queer: Poetry in a Time of Chaos, edited by Neil de la Flor and Maureen Seaton, is a collection of the most subversive, gritty, moving, and courageous writing to come out of the U.S. queer community in recent political times. “When we started to solicit material for the anthology in 2015,” says Seaton & de la Flor, “we didn’t expect to compile a survival manual. Overnight, the work of these fifty poets became even more crucial. It became sacred.” Reading Queer: Poetry in a Time of Chaos brings the LGBTQI community together in the spirit and solidarity of poetry at its finest and fiercest. “It is our gift to all conscious citizens. With love.”  (Seaton & de la Flor).
