Book Club: May 2016
by Raevin Wade
In this edition, I’ll be providing you with a series of reads which can be used to enhance your understanding on topics you may or may not already have knowledge of. For those of us who exist in some of the marginalized areas discussed in these reads, they may even provide affirmations in regards to our experiences. The writers, authors, and journalists behind these online articles and PDFs do an excellent job going in-depth on concepts we may all have had trouble understanding. Among other topics, these readings cover genocide, queerness and transness, anti-Blackness, and sex work.
