We're happy to announce the start of Stanford Pride Culture Club! Culture Club's goal is to highlight LGBTQ+ books and media and to create a space for pride members to connect with each other and discuss the content. Since many of us are currently sheltering in place we've selected 2 inaugural picks with virtual discussions scheduled for May and June. 

Our selection for June is the book On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong. A finalist for the Lambda Literary Awards, the novel has been described as "A shattering portrait of a family, a first love, and the redemptive power of storytelling" and "At once a witness to the fraught yet undeniable love between a single mother and her son, it is also a brutally honest exploration of race, class, and masculinity."

***Read the book on your own, then join us for a lively conversation about the novel and its meaning.
