LGBTQ+ History Month February 2021

The Bookish Type

Last year, Leeds' very own LGBTQIA+ bookshop, The Bookish Type, opened in the Merrion Centre. Joe Thompson talks about the origins of the bookshop, the importance of queer bookshops, and how reading queer books helped him to find his own voice and community in Leeds. Joe also introduces the fantastic range of LGBTQIA+ literature available in the shop and answers questions from those who attended the event.



West Yorkshire Queer Stories

West Yorkshire Queer Stories was an LGBTIQA+ oral history and archiving project, which ran from Feb 2018 - May 2020. Joe was a volunteer for the project talks about his experience collecting interviews from across West Yorkshire's diverse LGBTIQA+ communities, and the way in which this work helped him understand his own experience.
