Celebrate Our Upcoming Special Gender Issue with a Pop-up Fundraiser and Launch Party
Ella Kruglyanskaya, Arm Wrestling on Scarf, 2013

Guernica is back with another round of special issues this year, which means another year of paying contributors for in-depth looks at important topics. Help us celebrate with Guernica’s pop-up fundraiser and launch party! And because we bring you these special issues for free (but pay the writers), we thought we’d double up with a special pop-up fundraiser and launch party to help make it all possible.

And so we hope you’ll join us on Monday, March 16th at The Diamond Bar (43 Franklin St. Brooklyn, NY 11222) for drinks, shuffleboard, dogs, good cheer, a reading (and tarot readings!) from Alexander Chee, and a general good time. Not to mention that we’ll be raffling off goodies from Coffee House Press, Riverhead Books, ECCO, Graywolf Press, McSweeneys and Harper Perennial.

Scroll down to buy tickets!

About our special Boundaries of Gender issue:

If the shoe fits, can anyone wear it? What does it mean to occupy one gender or another? Is there a space in between? In this special issue, Guernica explores the boundaries of gender. Author Maggie Nelson (Bluets, The Argonauts) discusses queer family making and anticipating of the birth of a son with her fluidly gendered partner. Alexander Chee (Edinburgh) considers his first time in drag and how the performance shed light on the experience of femininity. Benjamin Percy tells about his visit to “Man Camp.” Laxmi Tripathi introduces readers to the Hijra community, the members of India’s “third gender.” More features, fiction, poetry, and interviews interrogate gender fluidity and rigidity around the world.
