About Gay Reader’s Forum

Welcome to the Gay Reader’s Forum – an online book club for you as a member of the LGBTQ+ community to discuss queer fiction and nonfiction, and best of all, a safe space for you to share your own story.

Every month we will discuss a new book, either fiction, creative nonfiction, or a political anthology that speaks to the queer condition, where you are invited to share your ideas and your own story as it relates to the work. Also, feel free to comment on any past book posting. The conversations are meant to continue.

This forum provides an opportunity for us within the LGBTQ+ community to engage those living beyond our own geography, to share in the experiences and perspectives of others, not just for our own sense, but for the solidarity of community.

About Me

Hi, thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Dave Bonini and I reside in Chicago, IL with my long-time partner and family. I’m a queer literature and gender geek with a Master of Arts in Writing and Publishing from DePaul University. I hope to one day complete a PhD in Gender & Sexuality Studies using many of the stories people contribute to this blog as my inspiration and focus. I wish everyone peace.

To contact me, please email davebonini@gayreadersforum.com.
