Exploring Black queer lives and love with gal-dem founder Liv Little
- 9:00 pm

Online | £11+
Described by Bernardine Evaristo as “a wonderfully fresh, zesty and sexy debut novelist”, Little’s striking debut novel, Rosewater, is a love story following Elsie, a Black queer poet in South London. Brought to life with poetry written by the trans visibility activist Kai Isaiah Jamal, Elsie is a free-spirited character, navigating the many nuances of adulthood and searching for her place in the world when the odds are stacked against her.
Through distinctive prose and subtle social commentary, Little’s debut is a meditation on how friendship can deepen into romantic love, and captures what it means to be young and open your heart today.
Join Liv Little, founder and former CEO of gal-dem, for a wide-ranging conversation with the award-winning writer, performer and theatermaker Travis Alabanza on her inspiration behind Rosewater and the importance of putting of Black queer lives, loves and longings centre stage.
