The Fighting for Space, Love and Loss Zine
Feb 28, 2019
Historically LGBTIQ people have fought for space because we had to, bringing the rights and places we needed into existence. How have we created, fought for and made space for our communities? What have we lost? As we often come to big cities as a place of safety, to find community, how are LGBTIQ people affected by or part of gentrification?
Download the Zine which holds the answers to these questions, and was featured at the Fighting for Space, Love and Loss event on the 28th of Feb 2019.
