History is full of queer people! But not enough of them have made it into historical fiction — until now.
In recent years a group of authors have been up-ending the historical fiction genre by not just representing LGBTQ+ life, but imagining wildly around the possibilities of queer bodies in Victorian suits or sexual fluidities before electricity. Featuring Nat Reeve’s queer Victorian hero from Nettleblack (Cipher Press, 2022), Nell Stevens’ transing of Chopin (Briefly, A Delicious Life, 2022) and the 1920s explorers conjured up by Ally Wilkes (All The White Spaces, 2022). AND performances from Miss Terri Boxx and the dashing Mr Darshe, who will emerge from the lake to give us a hilarious and hormone-sparking performance.
Join us for a night to celebrate these exciting literary experiments, with a fully queer line up of authors and performers, hosted by Adam Zmith, writer and Fringe!’s literature programmer.
