Bent Street 2

Bent Street Australian LGBTIQA+ Arts, Writing & Ideas is an annual publication that gathers essays, fiction, poetry, artwork, reflections, letters, blog posts, interviews, analysis, and rants, to bring you ‘The Year in Queer’.

Last year, Bent Street 1: ‘2017’ dealt with aspects of the marriage equality debate; Bent Street 2 covers 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.
