Quality Literature for the LGBT Community

Beautiful Dreamer Press began in 2000 with the publication of The White Crack, a book of poems by Vivekan Don Flint. Other books of poetry followed, as well as CDs on yoga and meditation. Following the publication of With Fingers on the Tips of My Words by M. J. Arcangelini, the press fell silent for a few years.

In 2015, Beautiful Dreamer Press relaunched with an anthology that paired stunning photos of male exotic dancers with stories, poems, essays, and drama inspired by them. Each entry in Not Just Another Pretty Face was the result of an author selecting a particular photo and writing directly about it. This approach to anthology building is a hallmark of Beautiful Dreamer. We intend to present usual topics andĀ unusual perspectives in ways that will delight and surprise us, and awaken new understandings.
