Author Matt Cook will discuss his new book Queer Beyond London, a journey through the LGBTQ+ history and lives of four English cites

About this event

When it comes to queer British history, London has stolen the limelight. But what about the millions of queer lives lived elsewhere? In Queer beyond London, two leading LGBTQ+ historians – Matt Cook and Professor Alison Oram – take you on a journey through four English cites from the sixties to the noughties, exploring the northern post-industrial heartlands and taking in the salty air of the seaside cities of the South – including Brighton – showing how local people, places and politics shaped LGBTQ+ life in each city.

Signed copies of Queer Beyond London will be available for purchase.
