Event description

Description

Join us for an evening of performances to celebrate Book Week Scotland. This year their theme is nourish, so all our performers will be using that as inspiration for their sets.

We're delighted to be hosting feature performances from award winning writers Kirsty Logan and Chitra Ramaswamy.

More performers to be confirmed!

We have a limited amount of 5 minute open mic spots. Let us know prior to the event if you would like one of them. I promise you a friendly and supportive crowd!

What you might need to know...

  • Venue open from 6pm, performances start at 6.30pm.

  • Multi level wheelchair accessible building. Hearing loop available on request.

  • This event is for anyone who primarily identifies as a women and non-binary people who feel more comfortable in women only spaces.

  • This event is FREE, but donations are welcomed to help us cover costs and pay our performers.

  • Tea, coffee, water and snacks provided free of charge.

We're also planning on having a free queer book exchange. Got a few trashy lesbian erotica novels gathering dust? Bring them along to swap them for a copy of something else!

As the theme for Book Week Scotland this year is nourish, we also invite you to bring along any food you might want to share with those present. We'll give you a label to write on why it is important for you and makes you feel nourished. (Tip: best to bring things that aren't too messy and can be eaten just with fingers and serviettes).

This event is part of LGBT Health & Wellbeing's services. LGBT Health & Wellbeing welcomes the entire diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, queer, intersex & asexual communities and allies. Our services and activities are for all people aged 16+. This includes those who are questioning their sexual orientation and/or gender identity and those who do not use labels for either.
