A Place of Our Own : A Celebration of Queer Spaces


Sun 4th 14:45 - 15:30

The Books Tent

with June Thomas and Diarmuid Hester

Journalist and podcaster June Thomas will be joined by Diarmuid Hester, radical cultural historian, writer and activist to explore the forgotten figures, radical communities and unusual venues that have shaped queer culture through the ages. From hidden spaces to feminist bookshops, via sex toy boutique, we see identities defined and question how this fits with today’s more inclusive, and yet more diffuse, LGBTQ+ communities.
