Throughout much of history, LGBTQ people have found themselves excluded from, or threatened and stigmatized within many shared spaces. As a result, LGBTQ people have found ways to create spaces of their own.

These spaces include bars and clubs, naturally, but also theaters, parks, museums, archives, private homes, bookshops and even such unlikely places as trains or historic monuments during particular seasons or times of day.

A new anthology of writing has brought together a sweeping global selection of such places, cataloguing the sheer variety of spaces LGBTQ people have created or co-opted to protect themselves and boost their communities’ resilience.

“Queer Spaces: An Atlas of LGBTQIA+ Places and Stories,” edited by artist and designer Adam Nathaniel Furman and art historian Joshua Mardell, provides insight into the sheer variety of LGBTQ geography. Pictured is Glasgow’s Category Is Books in Scotland. More at the link in bio.
