Edited by acclaimed poets Mary Jean Chan and Andrew McMillan, 100 Queer Poems isn't just a collection, it's a vibrant tapestry woven from the threads of LGBTQ+ experiences across generations. This anthology features both established voices like Elizabeth Bishop and Langston Hughes, alongside exciting new talents like Chen Chen and Jay Bernard.

Prepare to be surprised and challenged. 100 Queer Poems expands the definition of what a "queer poem" can be. It delves into themes of self-discovery, love, loss, and the complexities of forging a path outside societal norms. The poems explore urban landscapes and encounters with nature, reflecting on the past while celebrating the audacious act of creating a future self.
