‘Queer’ mag is back in time for Pride

A MAGAZINE focusing on LGBTQ+ life in the region has returned after a year’s hiatus.

Magazine co-ordinator Katy Fremantle is at the helm and says it has hit shelves once more with ‘a vengeance.’

She said: “Our magazine is self publicated, which requires a lot of our own time for it to be put together, and since the last edition in September 2018, due to life changes and unforeseen circumstances we have had a shuf e of staff.

“The team is now buzzing, which puts us in a great position to re-launch the whole project.”

Tomorrow marks the rst Dumfries and Galloway Pride in the Park, hosted by local drag artist Devine Tension and community radio sta- tion DCR.

The event at Dock Park will feature performances throughout the day as well as a youth zone and Pride Village, packed with stalls.

And Katy could not think of a better launch venue than Pride in the Park.

She said: “I came on board with the Dumfries and Galloway Queerier recently and straight away we decided as a collective that Pride is the perfect place for our re-launch, we then had a deadline to meet which was good fun and all productivity moved up a gear.

“I hope the readers nd it as interesting as we do.”

The latest Queerier features a special photo shoot, LGBT Inclusive curriculum in Scotland and much more. Katy said: “Our magazine promotes inclusion for all ‘Queer’ types in society and offers to support the community with different projects

alongside reader involvement in the magazine itself.

“We have a stall in Dock Park where someone from the team will be available for the entirety of Pride, please do come along and pick up your free copy on the day.

“Online edition available soon too.”

*Dumfries and Galloway Pride in the Park takes place on Saturday at Dock Park from 1 pm to 6 pm.
