Queer Reads Library 流動閱酷

 

Queer Reads Library (QRL) is a mobile collection of books and independently published zines centered around queer subjectivity. We also collaborate with activists, archivists and artists to host programs. Our team is Beatrix Pang, myself (co-founders) and artist-writer Rachel Lau. Follow our Instagram for updates and read about QRL on Still / Loud, Artforum, The Paris Review and Harper’s Bazaar (HK).
