LGBT publications have a long and deeply rich history, though it’s not often that the stories behind these zines and books are told. Often starting with scraps of paper, scissors and a photocopier, zines from the LGBT community have often been suppressed and forced to express their voices in the underground, relying on dedicated teams of people to produce the publications that people in the community wanted to read.

NewBridge Books is now celebrating the long and often untold history of these publications with Queer In Print, as part of the Northern Pride celebrations taking place in Newcastle between Friday 17th and Sunday 19th July. An exhibition of zines, magazines and other press materials from the LGBT underground will be on display for the public to browse and read through. Additionally, there will be related magazines and books for sale, for if you wanted to take your new found passion for the DIY LGBT press home.

Queer In Print comes to NewBridge Books, Newcastle from Saturday 11th July until Saturday 25th July.
