LGBT History Month event

Event location: WCML

Date: 6th Feb 2016

Event time: 14:00 to 16:00

Helen Smith, University of Lincoln - with readings by Mike Joyce

It’s Queer Up North? Working Class Men and Same-Sex Desire in the North of England

In this talk, Helen will be delving into the lives and loves of working class men in the north throughout the twentieth century. Throughout her research she has uncovered many stories that had been lost and because of this, gives an alternative history of same-sex desire. 

Mike Joyce, ex-Smiths drummer, has more recently been developing his acting and reading career - not least by kindly appearing in Library fundraisers!

Admission free; light refreshments available.
