30vOhjvVIndie publisher Cleis Press is celebrating LGBT pride month with a Twitter project that focused on the importance of LGBTQ writing.

The publisher is encouraging writers to share why queer writers are important to them on Twitter with the hashtag #OutWriters.

Here is more from the press release: “Cleis Press’s co-founder Felice Newman commented that ‘as an out writer myself, I’ve spent most of my life encouraging LGBTQ people to be visible, free, and well-pleasured. The presence of LGBTQ voices in literature is dear to my heart.’ Cleis hopes that OutWriters will help give LGBTQ books and writers the attention and visibility they deserve.”
