Queer Lives & Art | 40 Years of Lavender Menace (in person)
Tue 30 Aug 2022
12:45 - 1:30pm
This is the online streamed version of the live event.
Lavender Menace, Scotland’s first LGBT bookshop, opened in Edinburgh in 1982. In 2019 it was revived as an archive to preserve and celebrate hard-to-find and out-of-print LGBT+ books. To celebrate its 40th anniversary year we have invited founders Sigrid Nielsen and Bob Orr to be part of a panel discussion looking at its history. They will be joined by illustrator and writer Kate Charlesworth who has produced a series of portraits of queer writers for the anniversary, including bisexual Scottish poet Hamish Henderson (1919–2002). The discussion will be chaired by Lucy Armitage, Daskalopoulos digital producer, National Galleries of Scotland.
