Welcome to 2019! We have just received print copies of Bent Street 2. Copies can be purchased at Hares & Hyenas, or online, with other physical outlets coming on-stream soon. Also, the eBook should be out by this weekend. Most of the articles by our fantastic contributors can be found online here in the Bent Street Cafe. (Check out Henry von Doussa’s interview with Jennifer Power; or Marcus O’Donnell reflecting on the art of David Wojnarowicz). But of course you will want your own tangible physical copy that sits on the bedside table in ways that a laptop or device JUST DOESN’T.
Bent Street 2 covers aspects of ‘2018’, including the afterglow of the passing into law of same-sex marriage; the ongoing struggle for rights and recognition; reflections on the past; as well as presenting the queer imagination as it follows its own lights, digressions, yearnings, and strange associations. And it is our first venture into total colour printing.
