In Colorado, the conservatives are ultra, the liberals are flaming, and the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered population thrives alongside some of the most anti-gay organizations in the country.
Now, in Focus on the Fabulous: Colorado GLBT Voices, thirty-three of the state’s GLBT writers explore their history, their land, their loves, and their lives in a groundbreaking collection of short fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry that is sure to make readers see Colorado–and its GLBT community–in a new and exciting way. From Amendment 2 to gender reassignment and from PrideFest to prairie sage, the diversity reflects the many facets of Colorado as seen through the eyes of its GLBT resident writers.
Focus on the Fabulous: Colorado GLBT Voices is a Westword “Best of Denver” 2008 selection!
Focus on the Fabulous was also on the Denver Post local bestseller list in September 2007.
