Activity
Location: TSI Seminar Room 0.39

One of Pride Soc's initiatives this year is to establish a queer book club to offer members a chance to engage with queer literature, both fiction and non-fiction in an inclusive and accessible way. You're not an avid reader? You have too much reading to do for college and don't feel like you can commit to reading another book? Well, this book club is designed to be for you. Instead of expecting you to read beforehand, we plan on convening once a week and reading together so that nobody feels left out. We are collaborating with Lit&Deb society on this event. Our members voted over reading week to decide what book we would read first and the winning book was Loveless by Alice Oseman! 

Here is the blurb for Loveless:

For fans of Love, Simon and I Wish You All the Best, a funny, honest, messy, completely relatable story of a girl who realizes that love can be found in many ways that don't involve sex or romance. From the marvelous author of Heartstopper comes an exceptional YA novel about discovering that it's okay if you don't have sexual or romantic feelings for anyone. . . since there are plenty of other ways to find love and connection. This is the funny, honest, messy, completely relatable story of Georgia, who doesn't understand why she can't crush and kiss and make out like her friends do. She's surrounded by the narrative that dating + sex = love. It's not until she gets to college that she discovers the A range of the LGBTQIA+ spectrum -- coming to understand herself as asexual/aromantic. Disrupting the narrative that she's been told since birth isn't easy -- there are many mistakes along the way to inviting people into a newly found articulation of an always-known part of your identity. But Georgia's determined to get her life right, with the help of her friends.
