From the Introduction : ‘Bent Street is a page for rainbow essayists, yarn spinners and queer theorists. It is a canvas for diverse doodlers and alternative artists. It is an ear for wrathful rants and interesting interviews, an eye for raw reflections and a mouth for personal opinions. Apart from creating a ‘Bent’ space, we are an annual space – a collection of works started, finished, or toyed with in the year in which we publish. Some pieces are therefore seeds of ideas, others are well grown or have already borne fruit.’
Bent Street 1 – ‘2017’ (the inaugural edition) covers same-sex marriage in 2017, health and education, the meaning of queer history and progress; as well as presenting the queer imagination as it follows its own lights, digressions, yearnings, and strange associations.
Publication date: December 2017
