KIDS SPEAK OUT!

Researching and preparing for our new movie 'FREE', (sibling/sequel to FIT) We spent an afternoon at the South Bank Centre filming kids of gay parents - and straight parents - and bi parents and undefinable parents. And this is some of what they taught us.
Parents are Parents. Family is Family. Love is Love.

Tiny Pieces of Skull

Tiny Pieces of Skull

Out now - a provocative, groundbreaking and Lambda Award-winning novel by Roz Kaveney.

In the 1980s poet and activist Roz Kaveney wrote a novel, Tiny Pieces of Skull, about trans street life and her life in London and Chicago in the late 1970s. Much admired in manuscript by writers from Kathy Acker to Neil Gaiman, it has never seen print until now. Funny and terrifying by turns, and full of glimpses of other lives, it is the story of how beautiful Natasha persuades clever Annabelle to run away from her life and have more adventures than either of them quite meant her to have...

'...a whip-smart novel... a sharp delight' - Diva magazine

'wildly entertaining, and mines a lode of untrammelled joy from every small victory its characters experience.' - Lambda Literary

An exciting novel of contemporary Nigeria by Nnanna Ikpo - out now

Olawale and Oluwole are dreadlocked Yoruba lawyers, minority human rights activists fighting for a better Nigeria.

In the midst of this Wole and Wale must deal with an estranged convict father whose unexpected reappearance brings dark and troubling family secrets to light.
