Description

An independent bookshop in Glasgow. An ice cream
parlour in Havana, where strawberry is the queerest choice. A cathedral
in ruins in Managua, occupied by the underground LGBTQIA+ community.



Queer people have always found ways to exist and be
together, and there will always be a need for queer spaces. In this lavishly
illustrated volume, Adam Nathaniel Furman and Joshua Mardell have gathered
together a community of contributors to share stories of spaces that range from
the educational to the institutional to the re-appropriated, and many more
besides.



With historic, contemporary and speculative examples
from around the world, Queer Spaces recognises LGBTQIA+
life past and present as strong, vibrant, vigorous, and worthy of
its own place in history. Looking forward, it suggests visions of what form these spaces may take in the
future to continue uplifting queer lives.

Review quote

'This magnificent book reveals
the near-unbelievable ingenuity, courage and skill of queer people in creating
conditions for themselves ... it is a luminous queer archive-cum-party in its own
right, avowedly diverse, multiple and full of life.' - Olivia Laing


'A rich stew of the strange, the wonderful, and the queer.'
- Aaron Betsky
