We stand on the shoulders of giants. It’s time we learn their names. Award-winning translator Frank Wynne (Queer) and journalist Jack Guinness (The Queer Bible) share stories of queer icons and trailblazers throughout history, from ancient times to yesterday. They look back at tales from Catullus and Sappho through to modern day icons like Divine and RuPaul, and celebrate queer history and the people, the community and the allies that have inspired them. Chaired by ‘Gays The Word’ bookseller Uli Lenart.
