Participating Presses: Gaudy Boy, Indolent Books, Poets Wear Prada, and Querelle Press


Indie publishers and editors speak about the exciting diversity of their presses and publications. They also read from representative published works of LGBT interest. The talks are followed by Q&A. Come and find out more about the writing and publishing scene.



Indolent Books publishes work by underrepresented voices writing innovative, provocative, and risky poetry addressing urgent racial, social, and economic justice themes. Indolent was founded in 2015 by Michael Broder, who now serves as board treasurer and managing editor. In 2017 the press became an imprint of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity Indolent Arts Foundation.


Querelle Press is an independent LGBT book publisher whose mission is to celebrate and challenge how we view our lives as LGBT people. Querelle’s namesake is Jean Genet’s bold and distinctive novel, and the press aspires to publish in the book’s outspoken spirit. Under the guidance of publisher and editor Don Weise, and in partnership with writer and philanthropist Chuck Forester, Querelle publishes two new titles per year.

Founded by former Wall Street banker Roxanne Hoffman with her late husband, retired Hollywood agent Herbert Fuerst. John “Jack” Edward Cooper took over for Herb as co-editor from October 2011. Based in Hoboken, New Jersey with European office in Salazac, France.

Helmed by publisher Jee Leong Koh and managing editor Kimberley Lim, Gaudy Boy brings literary works by authors of Asian heritage to the attention of an American audience.
