This is an exciting new book club for readers of queer fiction.

For the introductory session, there will be a discussion what kind of reading the group wants to do; some titles will be listed & the participants will get a chance to vote on what to read first.

So if you are a fan of reading, or even looking for a reason to dip into some queer literature during lockdown, then here is the excuse you’re looking for.

Registration is through the Eventbrite link here (https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/droghedas-lgbtq-book-club-tickets-138425366999?utm-medium=discovery&utm-campaign=social&utm-content=attendeeshare&aff=escb&utm-source=cp&utm-term=listing) or by contacting Outcomers Drogheda on outcomersdrogheda@gmail.com
