Queer Silent Reading Party. Text over collaged purple, black, and white images.

Our first Queer Silent Reading Party was a smash hit, and we plan to host more! Sign up through the form below to be notified of future event dates.

An hour of silent reading with friends, followed by a short (optional) chat about what we’ve been reading. This is a virtual event! We will provide a Zoom room to gather with chill reading music, and you can choose your own IRL space to read*. Register with the form below to be added to our events mailing list and be notified of the next Queer Silent Reading Party date and time.

*Showing respect for disabled life is required during participation in Bi Pan Library events. If you choose to join the call from a public place (a park, outdoor seating at a coffee shop, etc), please be sure you are taking proper COVID precautions such as masking to protect yourself and your community.

  • Auto-captions will be available via Zoom.
  • Chat messages will be read out loud during the 30 minute discussion at the end of the event.
  • You can join or leave at any time.
  • There will be chill background music playing throughout the event, which you can opt-out of by joining the music-free reading breakout room.
  • Feel free to fidget, rock, stim, craft, knit, snack, pet your dog, etc. while you read.
  • Read however you need — audio, physical, ebook, it’s all great.
  • Do I have to have my camera on? No! You’re welcome to participate however you want. Read privately with camera off, read on-camera, whatever, we’re happy you’re reading.
  • Do I have to read a queer book? If you’re queer, read whatever you want. If you’re not queer, you’re welcome to respectfully share our space… but YES, you need to read a queer book!
  • Can I bring a friend? Definitely! But they should register separately if they are joining from a separate device.
