celebrating and creating our own LGBT history

Background

After the success and popularity of Febulous February 2014, 2015 and 2016, FioxiRose, writer, performance poet and lesbian, living in Kent, is reaching out again to friends, colleagues and associates who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and those questioning their sexual orientation and/or their gender identity and their family members. The invitation to you all is to submit a short piece of your own writing as a celebration during LGBT History month. The pieces, a mix of prose and poetry, may have specific LGBT content whilst others simply come from that perspective.

FioxiRose continues to dedicate this anthology to her dear friend and former partner Sheila, who sadly died very suddenly February 2015. Sheila championed Febulous February, made contribution and did a great PR job on it.

The theme this year: The Journey (500 words max.)

FioxiRose has agreed to post a piece here every day during LGBT History month, culminating in the creation of Febulous February (2017), an anthology which celebrates us in all our beautiful queerness, as well as embeds a landmark in our LGBT History.

Submissions to fionarose@gmail.com between 16 January – 10 February 2017.          Feedback on submissions within this site welcome.
