Event Description

Join us in celebrating the launch of Kindred: 12 Queer #LoveOzYA Stories, the highly anticipated collection of new Australian LGBTQ+ fiction for young adult readers!

Hosted by Philmah Bocks, this coming out party will be a fantastic night of fun performances, bookish readings and queer merriment.

Eight of the anthology’s contributors will be in attendance: Jax Jacki Brown, Claire G. Coleman, Michael Earp, Alison Evans, Erin Gough, Omar Sakr, Marlee Jane Ward and Nevo Zisin. Hear them in conversation and get your books signed!

We’ll be joined by special guest Minus18, Australia’s largest youth-led network for LGBTQ+ youth. 10% of all book sales on the night will be donated to Minus18. To make a direct donation to this fantastic organisation, head to
