Until I get round to editing the video files, here are some photos from Sunday’s event, where we launched Emma Lee‘s new collection, The Significance of a Dress, and thoroughly celebrated International Women’s Day with poems and flash from Laila Sumpton, Claire Booker, Sarah Lawson, Jenny Mitchell, Julie Easley, Cherry Potts, Michelle Penn, Shamini Sriskandarajah, and Emma Lee!
They may not be great photos but we had a lot of fun launching Happy Ending NOT Guaranteed on Thursday. Thank you to everyone who came and bought books in large numbers, even the local cat came in to check it out, though he was let off buying a book.

Join us at Basildon Library 7pm on Wednesday 12th April for more live readings from Liam.
We’ve raised (after fees) £2884 for Outcome, which should cover our printing costs for both the book and the launch exhibition.
You can see what it will look like here
We are inviting everyone who helped to show their colours:

And everyone who is IN the book we are asking to also show their colours:

We’ve hit our Crowd Fund target!
In fact we are slightly over. And we are getting lots of responses to our call out for more women, so looks like we’ll hit that target too. We are on a roll. Watch this space for more news as we gear up for publication, and well… stuff… a bit overwhelmed with excitement just now.
THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO CONTRIBUTED.
You can still contribute for the next few days on kickstarter
With ten days to go on our crowd fund for Outcome, our first non fiction title, and our first photographic book, we are at 87% of our target. If you would like to back the crowd find you can do so on Kickstarter please spread the word, we still need £304. It’s an all or nothing crowd fund, so if we don’t meet the target we won’t get any of the money and there will be no book.
We’ll be doing a round-up of where we are with the photographs later in the week, Tom had a pop up studio at the Ku bar in Leicester Square on Friday and is planning another this Friday,probably at the same place, so if you are interested and have yet to be photographed, get in touch! Although we are aiming at 100 photos of which 80 will be int he book, the more we have the more we can choose from, and the more flexible we can be in providing tailored versions of the exhibition to galleries, libraries, museums, community centres, schools and colleges. If you run one of these and would be interested in hosting the exhibition, please get in touch.
An opportunity to see an exhibition of some of the photographs that will be part of Outcome, our first Photographic book. If it takes your fancy, you can get involved by being the subject of a portrait (if you are LGBT, obviously) or by helping us raise the money to print the book, or by offering studio or exhibition space. Nip over to the Outcome page to find out more.

Here’s a gallery of pictures and the audio recording of the performance at the launch. With Kate Foley reading from The Don’t Touch Garden, and Sarah Lloyd & Ian Kennedy (and the audience occasionally) accompanying with music and song. We’ll put the Q&A up later, once it’s edited! And the video… out of focus though it is.
