Reading Queer

A nonprofit organization

RQ events promote diversity and inclusivity. Our primary projects include the RQ Literary Festival, the first annual queer-centric literary festival of its kind in South Florida, and the RQ Writing Academy, a series of creative writing workshops that fosters the careers of South Florida-based queer writers & artists.

Our Promise is that all Reading Queer events foster a community and culture of inclusion regardless of one's ability to pay, sexual orientation, gender, race and/or any other form of identification. All our events are safe spaces for queer-identified people and are designed to address the needs of marginalized communities who have traditionally been denied a voice. We count on your donations to keep our events & workshops accessible to the public.


Reading Queer empowers South Florida's queer literary community through the programming of virtual and in-person creative writing workshops, performances, and literary events.
