Category Is Books and Govanhill Baths Community Trust are delighted to present The Govanhill Queer Community Banner, a celebration of our diverse community.
Working with poet Dean Atta and artist gainAgain (Drew Taylor Wilson), the banner weaves together words and imagery by the queer community about collective experiences, histories, relationships and life in Govanhill, creating a beautiful snapshot of the Glasgow Southside’s queer community.
The banner can be viewed on the following days and times, in line with current Scottish Government guidelines:
Monday 2 – Friday 13 November 2020
Mondays and Tuesdays in the Category is Books window, 34 Allison Street, G42 8NN
