Queering the Map of: Glasgow

Glasgow All Ages Panel Event / Author Reading, Spoken Word / Performance Poetry / Slam History, Local Interest, Poetry, Romance, Scots, Scottish Writers

Knight Errant Press is back with a bang. After the success of its first crowdfunded anthology - F, M or Other: Quarrels with the Gender Binary - Knight Errant is back, putting queer experiences firmly on the map of Glasgow. Ely Percy will read from their debut novel Vicky Romeo plus Joolz, a butch meets femme romantic comedy set in Glasgow and set to be published in February 2019; followed by readings from Ryan Vance, Michael Lee Richardson and Eleanor Capaldi. The readings will be followed by a panel discussion with Ely, Nathaniel (Knight Errant) and Monstrous Regiment (of The Bi-ble and Monstrous Regiment Magazine fame) about our recent recon mission to map and record the local queer spaces and histories of Glasgow, and the significance of publishing queer voices as a way of placing and retracing queer experience in the past, present and future. This event will also mark the launch of the Wicked Wee Bks imprint - the first publication of the series conveniently shares its name with this event. Our queer map of Glasgow, by no means exhaustive, will be beautifully executed by Kirsty Hunter and available to purchase at the event.

1/3 of the total number of tickets are FREE. The code is 34QU. For students, people on low incomes, unemployed folks and any other beans who find themselves in a tough spot. There will also be tea/coffee and biscuits available on the night. Come and join us.
