What's happening this June? Your monthly round-up

Here is your monthly round-up, from local and online events to national creative calls. There's lots of local Sunderland goodness going on this June, and since it's Pride Month, we've highlighted some great projects like Queerlings and Sapphic Writers, and we'll continue to share throughout the month!


  • Speaking of the new PopRecs venue, at strange things? Collective we are running some creative workshops there this summer! Our Making a Mess workshops will run in two groups, one in Sunderland and one in Washington, and they're designed for 14-19 year olds. Find out more and sign up here.

  • Queer Peers is a zine of artwork, prose & poetry by members of the LGBTQ+ community who have lived experience of trauma, care & survivorship, created by FEELING QUEER and the National Survivor User Network. Flick through it online here!


  • Queer Zine Library are hosting a free intro to zine cataloguing for any lgbtqia+ folk in the UK. More info here.
