“Queer is a word that suggests there's an alternative, ideal or normal behavior in the world. But the truth is we're all queer in some fashion, whether it’s our outward or our inner lives, humans are all unique and therefore variant from some suggested mean.” —D.A. Powell

In November 2016, Poets & Writers named Foglifter as “One Of Nine Journals You Need To Read.” Born out of the need for a San Francisco Queer journal that emphasizes transgressive, intersectional, marginal, and cross-genre writing, Foglifter boasts an editorial staff composed primarily of Lambda Literary Fellows and S.F. State Creative Writing graduates. Tonight, hear readings from hosts and Foglifter contributors Randall Mann and Baruch Porras-Hernandez, and more authors from the newest issue. FREE
