Please get in touch for more accessibility information!


QBtC aims to provide access to queer materials that can be difficult to find in the city, as well as to support queer cultural production.

This book fair, now in its seventh year, is part of the alternative Pride event called Pervers/cité, a radical response to the continued commercialization and de-politicization of mainstream pride events in the city.

The bookfair attracts hundreds of people each year, and brings together both local and national independent bookstores, publishers, zinesters, authors, and community groups.

Queer Between the Covers is organized by a collective of volunteers based in Montreal, with the support of the Quebec Public Interest Research Group (QPIRG) at Concordia. The collective also maintains a year-round queer book and zine distro and puts on book launches and other smaller events every few months.

If you would like to volunteer for the book fair, please send us a message here, or at our email: queerbetweenthecovers@gmail.com.

The bookfair is being held in a wheelchair accessible space with wheelchair accessible, gender-neutral washrooms.The entrance doors are 30 inches wide and the two ramps leading to the space are 43 and 45 inches wide respectively. The bathroom doors are also 30 inches wide.

The bathroom door does not have a push-button, but there will be volunteers available to open the door. The volunteers can be contacted at the welcome table, or by telephone at a number that will be posted on the door to the bathroom. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
