Our friends at have invited us along to help put queer experiences firmly on the map of Glasgow this Book Week Scotland.
During the event, 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 — that’s us!!) 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.
Accessibility: The event will be mostly standing room, with limited seating. The shop is wheelchair accessible. Seating will be available for those who need it. No hearing loop (yet!). Autism-friendly space and lighting.
1/3 of the total number of tickets are FREE.
The code is 34QU.
