Aye Write! We Were Always Here

In conversation with Harry Josephine Giles, Etzali Hernández and Michael Lee Richardson

By turns serious and fantastical, hilarious and confrontational, queer anthology We Were Always Here is a snapshot of current Scottish LGBTQ+ writing and a showcase of queer talent. 

From drag queens and discos, to black holes and monsters, these stories and poems wrestle with love and loneliness and the fight to be seen. 

Followed by a screening of the BAFTA award-winning short film My Loneliness is Killing Me.

Shorts: Did You Really Say That?

mi·cro·ag·gres·sion / noun: a subtle but offensive comment or action directed at a marginalized group, often unintentional or unconsciously reinforcing of a stereotype. It’s time we make the invisible, visible and call out the pervasive biases that reveal themselves in thoughtless remarks. Come root for the protagonists in this skin-crawling collection as they confront their intangible — or in some cases, very tangible — provoker, one Did-you-really-say-that? moment at a time.

My Loneliness is Killing Me is screening with:

I Think She Likes You (dir. Bridey Elliott), USA
The Morning After (dir. Tricia Hagoriles), Canada
There's Still Good (dir. Ciaran Maidwell), South Africa
Not Black Enough (dir. Bryce Marrero), USA
Black Lips (dir. Adrian Chiarella), Australia
