The Coast Is Queer is the UKs largest LGBTQ+ literary festival and runs from the 12th October to the 15th at the Attenborough Centre in Falmer.

The blurb says

It brings together an exciting lineup of nationally and internationally acclaimed queer writers, poets, performers and activists in a three-day festival of accessible, lively in-conversation events, workshops, films and discussions celebrating LGBTQ lives and writing.

Featuring Juno Dawson, Laura Kay, Jamie Raines, AFLO The Poet, Joelle Taylor, Okechukwu Nzelu, So Mayer, Liv Wynter, Tasha Suri, Sanah Ahsan and many many more.

Stimulating, surprising, frequently very funny and often provocative, The Coast is Queer invites audiences to dive into fresh perspectives on subjects from lived experience of mental health, LGBTQ lives in Ukraine to bisexuality and hidden queer identities. There’s also spoken word, cabaret and dancing.
