Time: 7:00pm


Come cool off with us this summer in the basement of the Glory to celebrate the publication of FDBNHLLLTTFMOURNING, guest edited by amy etherington and featuring zack mennell, Biogal, James Sunderland, Fiona Glen, Jessie McLaughlin, Dan Schapiro, A Lyons, Stephanie Lones, Julian Konuk and Ioulitta Triantafyllou.

Here marks the last chapter of FDBNHLLLTTFPublications, so what better way to wrap up this series than with Mourning? In mourning, we sit together and sit with, lay something to rest and dredge some other things up (even if we probably shouldn’t). When we mourn, we look towards the kinds of loves our lives afford us, the kinds of loves we are striving for, and bring our bodies closer to one another. Mourning, here, is a kind of sitting, a kind of rubbing. This thing that gives us fictions and frictions.

The night will be hosted, as always, by Donna The First. Expect painfully long party games, jokes in poor taste, publications, prints and other delicious things, available to buy on the night.

amy etherington is an educator–researcher–writer, exploring grief, death and transness and how they sit by the edges of things. Her writing feels through/with a pessimism that there might only be no place for transexuals in this World, itself an imagining wrought from our violent unmaking. Her teaching work seeks ways to resist the institution a little longer from within its grounds, through collaborative investigation of care and caring practices with students. @amy.ether


Please note The Glory is a queer venue run by queer people, for queer people and their allies. We operate a zero-tolerance policy towards homophobia, transphobia, racism, misogyny and discrimination of any kind. Be respectful or you will be asked to leave. Strictly no office, hen or stag parties allowed.


The Glory is a very old building with pre-existing accessibility issues and while we’ve strived to make the space user friendly, there is no ‘easy’ wheelchair accessibility to all areas of the venue.


The main bar is accessible, though the toilets are up a flight of 3 stairs with a handrail. Wheelchairs cannot access the toilets however. There is a local restaurant a few doors down who have an accessible toilet that they are happy for our customers to use.


To access shows in the basement there is a narrow flight of 12 stairs with a handrail.


The main bar has plenty of seats and tables. Ticketed shows are seated unless otherwise stated.
