Featured in Manhattan Book Review’s Pride Month Roundup and Lambda Literary’s June’s Most Anticipated LGBTQIA+ Literature.

Told in multi-faceted layers of memoir, creative nonfiction, and poetry, every story shares a priceless event or moment where queer joy is found. I Feel Love: Notes on Queer Joy honors queer voices through the delightful pleasure in everyday occurrences featuring an anthology of talented voices within the LGBTQIA+ community and edited by Samantha Mann, author of Putting Out: Essays on Otherness. Her work has also been featured in Elle, Romper, BUST, Miss Representation, and The Audacity.

Joy is a form of resistance. Celebrate adoration and exhilaration.

The mission of this anthology is to be inclusive among its participants, establishing a series of experiences that will have the LGBTQIA+ community and its allies delighting in the beauty that is queer love.

The message in I Feel Love: Notes on Queer Joy is clear: being who you are meant to be is a precious gift we all deserve.

Praise for I Feel Love: Notes on Queer Joy 

Queer joy is in us, whether it travels inside our bloodstream or it’s waiting to be found. Each writer in I Feel Love has found it. Read their stories. If you, dear reader, think queer joy is an impossible destination, you’re damn wrong.

~ Lily Alvarado -  Autostraddle

Collected and edited by essayist Samantha Mann, what’s striking about this anthology is both the diversity in voices and styles and the impact of the short form....  I Feel Love is an important contribution to coming-of-age literature.

~ Wendy J. Fox - Buzzfeed News
