Writing on the Wall’s unique project, What’s Your Pride Story? is a creative writing initiative, in partnership with Liverpool Pride, which aims to uncover new stories from unheard voices within the LGBT community.
We started with the theme of ‘What’s Your Pride Story?’, so a lot of the writing is about people’s experiences of being LGBT+ in Liverpool, but everyone has their own take on the subject and their own unique voice.
The book is packed with very varied writing – it’s really fresh and original. There are stories about partying, friendship, sadness and disaster; poems about everything from a flood in the library to trans pride. Where else will you read about an ostrich riding on a rainbow surfboard across the Mersey?
