Queer Spaces: An Atlas of LGBTQIA+ Places and Stories

23 June 2022

18:00 -20:00

From forming a staging area for community action, to encouraging safe places for identity exploration, the spaces in which we gather can catalyse us all to act. In their simplest form, queer spaces have facilitated queer people to exist and be together, and there will always be a need for them.

In this lavishly illustrated volume, Adam Nathaniel Furman and Joshua Mardell have gathered together contributors to share stories of spaces, from the educational to the institutional to the re-appropriated, and many more, that recognise LGBTQIA+ life as strong, vibrant, vigorous, and worthy of its own place in history. Looking forward, it suggests visions of what form these spaces may take in the future to continue uplifting queer lives and encouraging active communities.

On 23 June, Grimshaw invites you to join the book presentation and a panel discussion chaired by Adam Nathaniel Furman and Joshua Mardell, editors of 'Queer Spaces: An Atlas of LGBTQIA+ Places and Stories'.

― Veronica Mckenzie, Writer, filmmaker & history buff
― Ben Campkin, Professor of Urbanism and Urban History at The Bartlett School of Architecture; Co-Director, UCL Urban Laboratory

Doors open at 6 pm
Panel Event starts at 6:30 pm
