About Strange Perfume

 

Strange Perfume is a queer artist group devoted to organising book-fairs, talks, events, and publications. The priniciple ethos behind Strange Perfume is to explore a world outside of the heteronormative and to create safe enviroments where practicing queer artists, writers, printers, and small publishers can constructively and openly discuss the identity and culture of the LGBTQIA community. Similarly, recent artist’s book fairs have hinted at a wealth of artist led publishing on queer and LGBTQIA themes, and yet no dedicated space for this exists. At the same time, as rents rise in London, more and more queer venues are being closed down affording fewer safe places for the queer community to come together:
