Re-invention UK, a gay-owned publishing company specializing in charity anthologies, is currently collecting stories, poetry, photography and art for their new project, “Listen without Prejudice.”
When published, “Listen” will reflect LGBT attitudes and perceptions on life. Straight allies’ voices will also be included. Issues that will be addressed include coming out, prejudice, the gay scene and HIV/AIDS.
According to the publisher, this new anthology is being assembled in memory of David Morley, an English gay man who, the publisher reports, was beaten to death in 2004 by homophobic youths.
Re-invention UK plans to donate 20% of the profits from the book to HIV/AIDS charities, and to Outrage, a UK-based queer rights activist organization.
The publisher is seeking submissions of photographs, stories, and poetry from members of the LGBT and allied communities, as well as from people living with HIV/AIDS.
