In addition to the monthly book club meet ups and quiz night socials at Flamingos, Leeds LGBT+ Book Club decided to run one off talks, readings and book signings. This very quickly grew into Leeds LGBT Literature Festival, a weekend long event in July 2018.

After the success of this first big event, the decision was made to change it to Leeds LGBT+ Literature Festival (as we felt more confident at providing greater diversity in our sessions) which is now a two yearly event. Additional, smaller events being branded as Leeds Mini LGBT+ Lit Fests.
