It will be held from 13 to 17 November and there will be workshops, panel discussions, tours and readings.

A festival for literature that covers LGBTI, queer and feminist themes. This is QLit, organised by Associació d’Escriptors en Llengua Catalana [The Association of Writers in Catalan – AELC] that will run for the second time from 13 to 17 November. In the organisersown words, the event involves four days for bringing together, exploring and explaining literature about dissident bodies and non-normative desires, our freest words.The various activities will be held in the Centre LGTBI Barcelona (c/ del Comte Borrell, 22).

This initiative seeks to act as a meeting place for readers, writers and critics, and also people who are interested in LGBTI topics. Bel Olid, Sebastià Portell and Ricard Ruiz Garzón, the QLit curators, are bringing together some of the most important names in LGBTI art and activism. That’s why there is a diverse range of activities, combining reflection and analysis with experimentation and moments of festivity. There will be a DragQueer workshop with Pol Galofré (which you‘ll need to sign up for by sending an email to aelc@escriptors.cat), and a performance by Susy Shock with queer poetry and songs, as well as various discussions and panels and even an LGTB tour around the Raval neighbourhood (registration via the email address listed above).
