Queer Spaces. An Atlas of LGBTQIA+ Places and Stories
An independent bookshop in Glasgow. An ice creamparlour in Havana, where strawberry is the queerest choice. A cathedralin ruins in Managua, occupied by the underground LGBTQIA+ community.
Queer people have always found ways to exist and betogether, and there will always be a need for queer spaces. In this lavishlyillustrated volume, Adam Nathaniel Furman and Joshua Mardell have gatheredtogether a community of contributors to share stories of spaces that range fromthe educational to the institutional to the re-appropriated, and many morebesides. With historic, contemporary and speculative examplesfrom around the world, Queer Spaces recognises LGBTQIA+life past and present as strong, vibrant, vigorous, and worthy ofits own place in history.
Looking forward, it suggests visions of what form these spaces may take in thefuture to continue uplifting queer lives.
