Cleis Press publishes provocative, intelligent books across genres. Whether literary fiction, human rights, mystery, romance, erotica, LGBTQ studies, sex guides, pulp fiction, or memoir, you know that if it's outside the ordinary, it's Cleis Press.

Cleis Press, the largest independent queer publishing company in the United States, celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2005. Among many lesbian, feminist, and gay presses that emerged in the 1970s and 1980s, Cleis is one of the only presses that is still run by its founders. Felice Newman and Frédérique Delacoste founded Cleis Press in 1980, and have worked together as co-publishers ever since. Author Regina Marler caught up with them over coffee in San Francisco.
