Queer Reads Library

Queer Reads Library (QRL) is a collection of books and independently published zines centred around queer narratives and themes. As a response to the censorship of ten LGBTQ-themed books for children and young adults in Hong Kong’s public libraries in June 2018, the Library brings together a selection of ‘queer reads’ for members of the public to engage with. In the spirit of openness and dialogue, Queer Reads Library serves as a testament to queer friends living in all societies, who still share their images and stories amidst dangerously increasing tides of transphobia and homophobia. Established in 2018, QRL is a collaboration between artist-curator Kaitlin Chan, artist-writer Rachel Lau and artist-publisher Beatrix Pang.
