This November, Glad Day Bookshop & Glad Day Lit are proud to present NAKED HEART – The LGBTQ Festival of Words. This 3 day event in the Church & Wellesley neighbourhood of Toronto includes workshops, panels, performances & discussions for writers and lovers of words. Launched in 2015, Naked Heart is already the largest and most diverse LGBTQ literary festival in the world with over 2000 attendees. In 2015, we had over 120 writers present at 47 events.

The call for submission from authors for this year’s Festival is now closed.
We will be announcing authors and the program for 2016 in early October.
