#LoveWins: Celebrating LGBTQ Love Stories

11987187_896547047061110_3414341396105967842_n2015 is a monumental year for love stories in all its rainbow colors! Come join us for #LoveWins, as we present a special reading event at Hugo House with five amazing authors—Edmond Manning, Alex Powell, Radclyffe, Anne Tenino, and Yolanda Wallace.

From contemporary romances to sci-fi space romps to college coming out stories, each writer shines a spotlight on LGBTQ lives, loves and relationships, and promotes the theme that there’s Happily Ever After for everyone, and Love really does win in the end.

Stay for the Second Act!

From 8:45–10 p.m., we’ll be hosting, 5 Minutes in Heaven: Fast and Flirty LGBTQ Love Stories to Ignite Your Night!

Presented by: Old Growth Northwest’s Gay Romance Northwest Initiative.
