To promote Miami as a center for LGBT literature by creating a Reading Queer series for writers who create hybrid, genre-bending works.

To promote Miami as a center for LGBT literature, Neil de la Flor will create a Reading Queer series for writers who create hybrid, genre-bending works. The annual, weeklong series will feature headliners at local cultural centers and galleries and writing workshops. An anthology of the series also will be printed. The project will reach out to young people to give them a safe space to talk about and explore sexual themes.
