What are your favourite queer stories? Are they books about real-world fictional LGBTQ+ characters, like Tipping the Velvet or Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe? Sci-fi cultures where gender and sexuality are very different, like Ancillary Justice or Star Wars fanfiction? Or is it books where you realised something about yourself – did you identify with George in Famous Five? Come along to our relaxed ‘reading group’, bring a passage from your favourite LGBTQ+ novel, poetry, short story, fanfiction or screenplay to read (we ask that you keep it PG!), and we will all talk about what makes these books special to us.
Co-hosted by Encompass Network and the Central Library.

Access: There is wheelchair access. There is padded seating, an accessible toilet, a designated quiet space, general car parking and blue badge parking in the Grand Arcade car park accessed by the lift next to the Library. There is a hearing loop by request in advance. This isn’t a gender neutral toilet, or a bsl interpreter. You can contact us about access on Libraries.ReferralCentrefirstname.lastname@example.org
