Headcase is a great book to get you through these weird and surreal times! Library Journal gave the anthology a fabulous ⭐️’d review: “Few books can make the claim of being unique, but this is one of them . . . the editors intend to start a conversation among LGBTQ people and the therapy community about topics that are usually hidden or ignored. In this goal, they succeed admirably . . . This terrific and essential work will benefit all readers.”
Thanks so much for your support

Victoria Brownworth penned a great review of “Headcase” in Philly Gay News this week.
We’ve had a few nice pieces published about Headcase and/or quoting us (the editors) recently. Curve (Fall 2019) is available in hard copy or a digital subscription while Sinister Wisdom (Summer 2019) is a hard copy-only publication.
