Arkansas's Sibling Rivalry Press gets two on ALA's 'Rainbow' list

Posted By on Mon, Jan 23, 2012 at 12:56 PM

Alexander, Arkansas's Sibling Rivalry Press, the home-grown publisher of LGBT literature run by Bryan Borland (who we profiled previously here) is well represented on this year's American Library Association Over the Rainbow list of the best LGBT books. Out of four collections of poetry selected for this year's Rainbow list, two of them — Kevin Simmonds' "Collective Brightness: LGBTIQ Poets on Faith, Religion and Spirituality" and Ocean Vuong's "Burnings" — were from the Sibling Rivalry stables. See Vuong reading his poetry in 2010 in the video above.

Sibling Rivalry Press also publishes the literary journal "Assaracus," which prides itself on being the only journal dedicated to poetry by gay male writers in the U.S.
