Edited by Anthony Luvera and Maria Jastrzebska, Queer in Brighton records the cultural heritage of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people in Brighton and Hove, past and present, in an anthology of oral histories, essays, creative writing and photography. The anthology has many layers: it includes creative writing by established and published authors through to people who have never written before; excerpts from oral histories of people’s experience of Brighton recorded and then transcribed; four essays by academics on the project’s core themes of place, language, politics and family (by Kath Browne of Maynooth University and Leela Bakshi, Lucy Robinson of University of Sussex; John McCullough; and Andy Medhurst of University of Sussex); and a visual element of collected photographs and memorabilia that record key events and activities related to LGBTQ people history in the Brighton and Hove, and the United Kingdom more widely.
