Big Queer Book Club
The Big Queer Book Club is a place for both queer (& non-queer!) folks to come together, discuss stories written by LGBTQ+ authors and stories centered around LGBTQ+ characters, and connect over shared experiences.
Matt dreamed of creating a space for queer connection for a long time. Big Queer Book Club was founded on the idea of connecting like-minded people over beautifully written queer books.
Each month BQBC reads one queer-written or queer-focused book and tracks their reading by hopping into a weekly live audio chat. At the end of the month they have a live “bonanza” where they talk about their reactions to the entire book.
Matt Benfield is a Toronto-based lifestyle writer and influencer. He enjoys spreading light and positivity through sharing content of his travels around Europe.
He is a huge advocate for creating a safe space online for LGBTQ+, which is why he started the Big Queer Book Club.
