Queering Pleasure 
 


The Queering Pleasure group is dedicated to reading and discussing pleasure positive, inclusive books that subvert dominant paradigms especially around sexuality, practice, and collective + individual liberation. We meet on the third Wednesday every month at 5:30 pm. Our book club will meet virtually until we can connect in person at Zenith Bookstore again. Book club founder Erin O'Daniel is a writer who was born in Miami, survived sex-ed in Texas, and as a pleasure activist focuses on reproductive justice + sexual freedom. Erin has called the western tip of Lake Superior home for twenty years. Book club members will receive a 15% discount when they buy their books through Zenith Bookstore.
