Magic City Books, Tulsa Artist Fellowship, and Abrams Books present a celebration of the much-anticipated launch of Ryan Fitzgibbon’s A Great Gay Book: Stories of Growth, Belonging & Other Queer Possibilities. Join us Monday, May 20, from 6 – 9 pm at Philbrook Museum of Art. The evening will include food by Et al. and Prism Cafe and performances by Cowboy Crooner, Andrew Sa, and writer Mathew Rodriguez. This event is free and open to the public. Copies of A Great Gay Book will be available at the event, but to ensure you don’t miss out, we suggest you preorder here!

A Great Gay Book: Stories of Growth, Belonging & Other Queer Possibilities is a gorgeously designed collection of art, essays, short fiction, poetry, interviews, profiles, and photography from the archives of the beloved queer magazine Hello Mr., as well as new material from many of today’s biggest LGBTQ+ creatives.

Hello Mr. was founded by Ryan Fitzgibbon in 2012. Over its ten-issue lifespan, the groundbreaking indie magazine became the first home for some of the most prestigious queer voices of a generation. With more than a decade’s devotion and the publishing prowess of Abrams, Fitzgibbon has created an astonishing reminder of our collective power in A Great Gay Book.

Notable artists and writers featured include Jeremy Atherton Lin, Lady Bunny, Alexander Chee, Garth Greenwell, Saeed Jones, Wesley Morris, Chani Nicholas, Tommy Pico, Brontez Purnell, LJ Roberts, Mathew Rodriguez, Antwaun Sargent, Fran Tirado, Ocean Vuong, Bryan Washington, John Waters, Kehinde Wiley, J Wortham, Hanya Yanagihara, and many more.
