This landmark literary collection strives to reflect the complexity of identities within Native Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Two-Spirit (GLBTQ2) communities. Gathering together the work of established writers and talented new voices, this anthology spans genres – fiction and nonfiction, poetry and essay – and themes – memory, history, sexuality, indigeneity, friendship, family, love, and loss – and represents a watershed moment in Indigenous literatures, queer studies, and the intersections between the two.
