The first Queer Company event was held on 9 May 2015, and a ball was had by all! There was a real happy buzz around the whole thing, and it seemed pretty clear that people wanted us to try and do it all again the following year.
Here’s some lovely blog posts to give us all a good nostalge:
- Eleanor Musgrove, Delegate and ‘Poppies’ author, said: The event itself was incredible. I met some really lovely people, signed some books(!) and just generally had a wonderful time.
- Liam Livings, our delightful MC, said: I left feeling inspired about writing, pleased I have such wonderful friends through writing, and educated about lots of historical things I knew nothing about before.
- Charlie Cochrane, our beloved keynote speaker, said: Last weekend was just brilliant. Good panels, old friends and new and an excellent speaker on the topic of Dorian Gray who managed to tread a great line in terms of being just academic enough.
Just wonderful …
