Editors Maria Jastrzębska and Shaun Levin are looking for true tales for a new collection of stories, oral histories, and photographs about the unspoken and outspoken stories of LGBT Brighton (UK), from the 1940s to the present.

Stories about the places, the music, the fashion, the slang, the clubs, the bars, the living rooms, the squats, basements, and cruising grounds where you fell in love, danced till the early hours, looked after friends and lovers, had sex, plotted the revolution, brought up your family (or escaped from them), set up home… and the streets and parks where you marched, held hands, argued or made up.

Contributions welcome from all who identify as queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender with experience of living in or visiting Brighton.

DEADLINE for submissions is March 1, 2013

All contributors will receive a copy of the Queer in Brighton book.

Submit your stories via e-mail to: editors@queerinbrighton.co.uk, or send a hard copy to: Queer in Brighton, c/o New Writing South, 9 Jew Street, Brighton BN1 1UT

Word count: 500 words (no more than 2 pieces at the first instance). We’ll read submissions as they come in, so we encourage early submissions.
