Event Details

I'm so excited to share this book with our community—I think we're all needing a little extra love in our lives! 

Please join me and the Out in Print crew for a conversation about Kai Cheng Thom (writer, performance artist, social worker, fierce trans femme and notorious liar who loves lipstick and superhero cartoons)'s I Hope We Choose Love. 

Let's take a look:

"What can we hope for at the end of the world? What can we trust in when community has broken our hearts? What would it mean to pursue justice without violence? How can we love in the absence of faith?

In a heartbreaking yet hopeful collection of personal essays and prose poems, blending the confessional, political, and literary, Kai Cheng Thom dives deep into the questions that haunt social movements today. With the author's characteristic eloquence and honesty, I Hope We Choose Love proposes heartfelt solutions on the topics of violence, complicity, family, vengeance, and forgiveness. Taking its cues from contemporary thought leaders in the transformative justice movement such as adrienne maree brown and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, this provocative book is a call for nuance in a time of political polarization, for healing in a time of justice, and for love in an apocalypse."

Apocalypse, heartbreak, hope, and lipstick? Sounds like a Monday to me.


Come one, come all: we practice inclusivity and nonjudgment in our group. #saferspace
