Folkestone's first LGBTQIA+ Zine! Produced following online workshops with Nico Dunsbee & an open call for submissions.
Fullmoon Prodcutions dedicated their February production to LGBTQIA+ history month with a reimagining of the handkerchief code. Handkerchiefs were dyed using locally foraged things, then printed with text & drawings to depict a new series of codes from a queer, lesbian perspective.
A series of writing workshops led by Kerry Ryan. We hope to continue these in the future!
Nico Dunsbee led a series of online zine workshops.
