Queera historier från Malmö

Adriana de La Peña Espinosa New Publication LGBTQI, Malmö

During World Pride, Pål Brunnström and Matilda Svensson Chowdhury released a wonderful anthology called ”Queera historier från Malmö”.

Where in Malmö did men meet to have sex with each other in the 1910s? What did gays and lesbians do to create attention at Folkfesten in Pildammsparken in the 1970s? How was the arrival in Malmö for Sweden’s first gay immigrant relatives? What were the hottest queer punk bands on the stage during the 2010s?

These questions get answered in Queera historier från Malmö, told by 20 stories of people, organizations, and events, that in different ways, expand, challenge, and write about the city’s history.
