Aesop's Free Queer Library Is Officially Returning

Across New York, Los Angeles, London and Toronto.

The Aesop Queer Library is back, showcasing the power of queer storytelling and its ability to foster inclusivity and unity. For four days, the library invites visitors to rediscover forgotten texts by LGBTQIA+ authors and allies, providing easy access to these important narratives. For the third time, the label has collaborated with Gay’s the Word, along with Pilot Press, Fourteen Poems and Cipher Press to curate a diverse selection of titles.

In addition, Aesop has partnered with A Vibe Called Tech, a Black-owned creative agency, to showcase online excerpts from two historical queer texts: A Place for Us by Isabel Miller and Escape to an Autumn Pavement by Andew Salkey. In London, a panel discussion titled “Repeated Histories” will feature Charlene Prempeh, Lewis Dalton Gilbert, Paul Mendez, Erica Gillingham and Dr. Peter Ely, exploring the importance of preserving stories from marginalized communities.

The Queer Library extends its reach globally from New York and Los Angeles to Toronto from June 20 to 25 under the theme of “Stories, unsilenced.” These branches will highlight banned or challenged titles from the U.S. and Canada.

You will be able to pick up a complimentary book from the Aesop store locations, with no purchase required, from June 29 to July 2. For more information about The Aesop Queer Library, visit Aesop’s website.
