We Were Always Here is a snapshot of current Scottish LGBTI+ writing and a showcase of queer talent.
From drag queens and discos, to black holes and monsters, these stories and poems wrestle with love and loneliness and the fight to be seen. By turns serious and fantastical, hilarious and confrontational, We Were Always Here addresses the fears, mysteries, wonders and variety of experience that binds our community together. We Were Always Here is a snapshot of current Scottish LGBTI+ writing and a showcase of queer talent.
This anthology is the result of Queer Words Project Scotland, which mentored emerging writers to publication by some of Scotland’s most prominent queer authors, poets and playwrights. It was run by the co-editors of this book, Ryan Vance and Michael Lee Richardson.
