I’m honoured to be appearing at Naked Heart Festival, which is coming up very soon. Staged right here in Toronto, Naked Heart is the world’s largest LGBTQ literary festival. It’s produced by Glad Day Lit, which runs Glad Day Bookshop, the world’s oldest LGBTQ bookstore. (This bookstore has been a wonderful supporter of my work right from when I first arrived in Toronto in 2013—this was even before Look Who’s Morphing was published in Canada.)

This year’s festival runs from Friday November 11 to Sunday November 13. The program is packed with so many excellent writers and events—check out the program here! I’m also really happy with how I’ve been programmed. On Saturday November 12, I’ll be speaking about the writerly version of Imposter Syndrome. The next day, I’ll be reading on religion (which means that I’ll be giving a reading from my novel-in-progress). Details below:
