Portland Queer: Tales of the Rose City

Ariel Gore
At once a love letter to the Rose City and a dream of escape, the first-person narratives ofPortland Queer reveal the contradictions and commonalities of life in one of the world’s great queer meccas. A waiter falls in love with a straight guy from the café next door. A young dyke discovers gay karaoke at the Silverado. A pregnant man prepares for new life transitions. An ambitious teenager finds her tribe at St. Mary’s Academy. A closet-case is confronted by his wife. And a video-game addict takes a chance on love.

Nice collection of short stories. If you don't live in Portland or have no interest in the city, you might want to pass the book over or at least be selective of the stories cause some aren't quite "literature." I think "Chinook" is an excellent story and would recommend it to anyone, anywhere.
