Let's celebrate love!

WRITING on the Wall are proud to announce:- 'What's Your World Pride Story,' an anthology of new work by LGBT+ talented writers from across the globe. This is a culmination of a 12 week writing course with Writer and Poet Helen Sandler, 'The Touch Typist' (Diva, 2001) and 'Big Deal' (Sapphire/Virgin, 1999).

Writing on the Wall has once again partnered with Pride, embracing this year's theme of International Love. 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the legalisation of homosexuality in the UK. But is this an indication of how accepting the world really is? Many LGBT people still face daily persecution and are forced to flee countries where homosexuality is still illegal.

Many of the 'What's Your World Pride Story' group are refugees seeking asylum in the UK. Their stories are diverse, moving and insightful. The book raises awareness of the issues faced by LGBT+ communities nationally and internationally ranging across multiple themes:- fear, struggle, love and acceptance. This remarkable collection of short stories and poetry features work from authors making their debut and aims to help participants regain their personal narratives.

Join us at the 'What's Your World Pride Story' book launch at the 'Garden Stage,' as part of Pride. We're thrilled and proud to showcase their work so meet the authors, listen to their readings and help celebrate the stunning talent of these ground breaking authors.

WoW Project Manager, Emma Hulme says:- "Liverpool Pride's theme of international love resonated with us this year and presented an opportunity to work with our most diverse group yet. Often, the struggles that people face for acceptance within their own LGBT+ communities goes ignored, the struggles within this community are not a single story and this project has helped empower and represent those voices. The anthology shares writing from trans females, refugees and asylum seekers and BRM communities making it not just a collection of creative writing but an important piece of activism too."

Find out more about 'What's Your World Pride Story' and other projects via the Writing on the Wall's website. 'What's Your World Pride Story Book Launch' is on 'The Garden Stage,' from 1:40pm to 2:10pm also 2:50pm to 3:20pm, on Saturday, 29 July 2017.
