The New Q Desire

An Anthology of Queer People Sharing Intersectional Wisdom
This publishing project comes out of conversation between Malcolm Himschoot and Rebecca Voelkel. The idea began when as white queer identified religious leaders in the spring of this year, we were asked “what’s next” for the movement. Connected to queer leaders who have never been limited to just one issue, most of all people of color, we began thinking how we could distribute more widely the lessons taught by change-makers across a range of economic and social justice issues. This gave rise to the idea of a book with chapters written by queer people who could from their experience name the intersections at the heart of a good answer to that question. The anthology will share powerful narrative experiences of activists, religious leaders, thinkers and artists, and be used to teach queer and allied readers important aspects of being part of an embodied movement.
