Speak my Language

and Other Stories: An Anthology of Gay Fiction

Torsten Hojer

Brighton Boy Hojer has curated this wonderful anthology of clear LGBT short fiction from voices which cover a broad reach of queers experience and life from many different angles; taking in generations, identity and culture. The narrative subject of all the stories are wildly dissimilar but they all come back to the point of view of the Queer life lived well.  Stephen Fry’s foreword to the book captures this as it describes the stories as all different but “offering a surprising sense of shared identity.”

This a great anthology covering all types of writers from the well-known and established to the more experimental and new with a  few classic writers who laid down the foundations for LGB authors included.


Hojer has produced a vital, vibrant and utterly enjoyable book which should grace every Queers bookshelf or travelling bag.
