BOYS, An Anthology, a collaborative book that explores the lives of gay, bi, and trans men around the world, was released in fall 2013 at #1 on the Amazon.com Gay & Lesbian eBook and print book charts. To celebrate, a launch party will be held this Sunday at Akbar on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
Starting at 8PM, co-editors Zach Stafford and Nico Lang, blogger Justin Huan, vlogger R.J. Aguiar, and filmmaker and trans advocate Buck Angel, all of whom contributed to the anthology, will give a reading from BOYS, followed by a book signing, an opportunity to meet the contributors, and an after-party with drink specials and DJ Paul V. Vitagliano. The reading will be hosted by Hank Henderson, curator of the LA reading series homo-centric.

Proceeds from the event, which has a $5 suggested donation and where books will be sold for $12.99, will go to Lambda Literary Foundation’s Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBT Voices, to support LGBT literature and writers.
