Celebrating Queer Voices

Brilliant voices.
Brave and beautiful stories
For many of us who identify as LGBTQ+, sharing queer stories is an important part of exploring, embracing and expressing our identities.

This collection brings together some of the most compelling stories from LGBTQ+ voices, ranging from classics that defied societal limitations, to work by emerging talent that is shaping how we talk about and understand the LGBTQ+ experience today. Whether you hope to reflect on the progress we've already made, ponder what lies ahead, or are looking to hear stories that you may be able to relate to personally, I encourage everyone to embrace the spirit of activism and inclusivity that these stories represent. - Robin, Audible Editor
