Join us on June 27th at 6pm for a conversation between author Jake Hall and book club impresario / friend-of-the-shop Alyssa Lloyd, discussing Jake’s new book Shoulder to Shoulder: A Queer History of Solidarity, Coalition and Chaos.

The book takes a global look at bold moments where marginalised voices came together to say - enough is enough. It is a love letter to the pioneers of solidarity and coalition, the story of those who sacrified individual gains to fight for collective freedom.

Through astounding research and fascinating storytelling, Shoulder to Shoulder, transports us through time and into the world of these trailblazers, bringing their tales to life and exploring both the inexplicable joys and brutal realities of their fights for justice.

Spanning movements from the Black Panthers coalition with the Gay Liberation Front in the US to the Pride support for miners strikes in the UK, Shoulder to Shoulder shows how marginalised activists have always been intertwined in their pursuit of joint liberation.

A beautiful celebration of our often chaotic, and always messy, human history and those incredible, ordinary people who pushed for equality no matter the cost. Shoulder to Shoulder is for anyone who loved Bad Gays, Natives or Poverty Safari and is hungry for a fresh perspective on our shared human history.
