LGBT+ Lit Fest is a group working to celebrate and promote a diverse range of LGBTQIA+ stories and literature-based content. We want to see ourselves and other LGBTQIA+ people reflected in all types of literature.


We organise in-person and digital literature festival events such as talks, workshops and readings. We run a monthly virtual Book Club on the first Wednesday of each month and also provide regular literature themed content through our socials.


LGBT+ Lit Fest is run by volunteers from Leeds, the wider UK and internationally. All our events are paid for via grants/funding, fundraising, any ticket sales and donations. We also aim to keep our ticket prices low and accessible, or free if possible.


If you would like to support the work we do, please consider donating via PayPal here.


You can follow us on social media: @LGBTLitFest on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. You can join our closed Facebook group here and contact us via our socials, or email us here.


In the run up to our Lit Fest events, we advertise call outs for contributors via our social media. If you would like to be involved as a volunteer at any time, drop us an email here.
