Bright Lights, No City

The Centre for Stories is excited to announce the release of 'Bright Lights No City' published by Margaret River Press.

May 22, 2019

Bright Lights, No City was a project that documented the experiences of nine LGBTQIA+ youth that had grown up in regional Western Australia. These oral and written stories touched on love, desire, suffering, pain, and adolescence. The Centre for Stories is excited to announce that the nine stories were developed by Margaret River Press into a small publication titled, Bright Lights No City edited by Sisonke Msimang.

You can purchase a copy of this book from Margaret River Press here.

An orange book cover with purple and white contour lines on a topographic map. The title 'Bright Lights No City' is in bold white font. The book was edited by Sisonke Msimang.

We thank all those who participated in this project for so generously sharing their vulnerabilities. This project was made possible with funding from Community Arts Network (WA) who manages the Catalyst Community Arts fund on behalf of the State of Western Australia through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
