Given all that is going on right now, particularly with the content of the book, I’m donating thirty percent of what I make from Olivia this quarter to BLM and bail funds. I would also suggest looking to black authors who I’m quite certain can tell their stories better than I can. Some I’d recommend are:
My publisher, Bold Strokes Books, has started two initiatives to make the voices of BIPOC in the LGBTQ+ community heard. You can read their statement here or read the below image for the first.
They are also looking for stories to submit for the short story anthology collection: In Our Words: Queer Stories from Black, Indigenous and People of Color Writers. Stories selected by Anne Shade and edited by Victoria Villaseñor.
