BGD Press is the brainchild of award-winning writer Mia McKenzie. What started out as a scream of anguish has evolved into a multi-faceted forum for expression. BGD seeks to, in as many ways as possible, amplify the voices, experiences and expressions of queer and trans people of color.
Since its inception in December 2011, BGD Blog has featured over 300 diverse writers from 3 countries and reached over 7 million readers from every populated continent on earth. With its focus on social justice from a QTPoC perspective, BGD is the only forum of its kind on the web.
BGD Books, BGD’s offline publishing project, publishes books by queer and trans writers of color, including novels and essay collections.
