Strange Perfume

Talks and workshops curated by Paul Clinton. Co-organised with Jordan Taylor, Jamie Atherton and Cherry Styles

 

Strange Perfume is a LGBTQIA book fair that focuses primarily on artists books and printed matter. Taking place across two days, the fair will feature stands from an international mix of independent publishers and artists, selling queer fiction, critical and political writing, drawing and printmaking. Alongside this, a programme of performances, readings and workshops will reflect the diversity of queer artists’ publishing, including activist, historical and more recent work. Here’s a whiff of what Strange Perfume is all about:

 

What was once the ‘love that dare not speak its name’ now seems to never shut up, with ever more queers publishing their own material. Scenting this change in the air, Strange Perfume is a new fair gathering together the wealth of printed matter being produced by queer artists about the LGBTQIA experience. Step up to the fragrance counter and sample from a range of stalls featuring books, editions, posters, badges and more, alongside talks and events.

 

It’s a chance to meet other bookish benders at a time when gay bars and clubs are shutting down and the queer experience is being co-opted by mass media. So get off Grindr, say sod off to Scruff, step out into the world and envelope yourself within the Strange Perfume. – Paul Clinton
