Queer Spaces panel discussion

 
  7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
 £12

An evening highlighting and celebrating the rich diversity of LGBTQIA+ spaces featured in the new book, Queer Spaces by RIBA Publishing.

The evening invites some of the contributors to deliver fast-paced presentations, exploring the various architectural examples, including bookshops, nightclubs, archives, and museums.

"Queer people, throughout the world and across time, have always found ways to exist and be together, and there will always be a need for queer spaces."

Whether celebratory and social, or urgent, even lifesaving in purpose, queer space resists a fixed typology, form or style, sometimes emerging and developing organically in existing buildings, sometimes in customised private dwellings. Queer space can be private and hidden, or it can be communal and shared. Its defining, enduring feature is that of freeing queer people who use the space, from the constant pressures of hiding, modifying or even justifying their existence.

This event coincides with the launch of the new book by RIBA Publishing, Queer Spaces: An Atlas of LGBTQIA+ Places and Stories, edited by artist and designer Adam Nathaniel Furman and architectural historian Joshua Mardell.

The new publication is sponsored by AHMM, Anomaly, Grimshaw, PLP and RIBA.
