This upcoming free event is taking place at Jubilee Library:
Bethan Roberts will be discussing her novel My Policeman, set in the Brighton underground gay scene of the 1950s. Hear her talk about how she researched the book. http://bethanrobertswriter.co.uk/books/my-policeman/.
Allie Rogers, born and raised in Brighton, is an author of short fiction published in several magazines and anthologies, including Brighton’s ‘Queer’. She will be discussing her debut novel Little Gold, set in our fair city in the 1980’s.
Also, take a tour of the ‘Into the Outside’ exhibition. This is a young people’s project, which examines how issues faced today by those of a similar age identifying as LGBTQ+ compare with those faced by young LGBTQ+ people over the past forty years in the same city. The project was supported with access to archive materials including the National Lesbian and Gay Survey, culminating in a brand new youth archive at The Keep.
Come along and meet staff from The Keep to discuss their LGBTQ+ archive and their support of ‘Into the Outside: The Next Chapter’ by Brighton & Hove Young People.
