Queer Intentions

  • LIGHTHOUSE - Edinburgh's Radical Bookshop 43-45 West Nicolson Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH8 9DB United Kingdom (map)

with author Amelia Abraham

Amelia Abraham takes us on a funny and thought-provoking journey to investigate what it means to be queer in 2019. The options and freedoms on offer to LGBTQ+ people living in the West are greater than ever before.

But is same-sex marriage, improved media visibility and corporate endorsement all it’s cracked up to be?

At what cost does this acceptance come?

And who is getting left behind?
