Reading the Rainbow: Exploring the LGBTQ Books that shaped us

Sunday, Jun 23 2019
15:00 - 16:30
Book Club
location: Lighthouse

Book places here.

What are your favourite LGBT books? What queer books shaped you/inspired you/touched you? A cross between book club & craft workshop, this wee gathering will explore LGBTQ books past & present to consider the role books have played in LGBTQ culture, their part today, and the books we want for tomorrow.

We’ll be exchanging stories and recommendations and creating a collage poster to represent all these : note, no creative skills are necessary!

Tea & cake will be on offer, and we’ll be seated for the session.

This event is part of Lavender Menace Weekend celebration of Pride- We’re thrilled to be working with founders Sigrid Nielsen & Bob Orr, for a wee revival of Lavender Menace, Scotland’s first LGBT bookshop.

You can also buy your tickets in the shop & save yourself the eventbrite booking fee :P

The bookshop is wheelchair accessible, events are seated and speakers use microphones throughout their events. We have further details about accessibility HERE, or feel free to get in touch, we’re happy to help however we can!

The Bookshop operates a Safe Space Policy which all guests and speakers are asked to respect - you can read it HERE.

As ever we have 6 free tickets available for this event! These are intended to make the evening accessible to those who are unwaged/ on benefits/ might not otherwise be able to attend - If you can afford a £3 ticket please book one as this supports the bookshop and allows us to save free places for those who can’t, thanks!
