Reclaiming Our Own Narratives: A reading from Headcase: LGBTQ Writers & Artists on Mental Health And Wellness

Headcase is a groundbreaking collection illustrating the intersection of mental wellness, illness, and LGBTQ identity, as well as the lasting impact of historical views equating queer and trans identity with mental illness. The pieces offer personal views from both providers and clients, often one and the same, about their experiences. Traversing boundaries of race and ethnic identity, age, gender identity, and socioeconomic status, Headcase’s prose and artwork tell personal stories that are vital to LGBTQ survival.
