A new collection of LGBTQ+ poetry promises to question and redefine "what we mean by a 'queer' poem."
100 Queer Poems contains works from 20th-century and contemporary poets, ranging from Langston Hughes to Ocean Vuong.
The Guardian notes that the most recent anthology of queer poems was actually published back in 1986 — hence the reason the new collection's contributors believe this one redefines the genre.
You can read select works from 100 Queer Poems, along with commentary from contributors and editors, in the Guardian.
