In Fabric, Queer books of the '90s, HMS Caroline, A forgotten female script

A killer dress is on the hunt in Peter Strickland’s new kitsch horror film In Fabric, which stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste as an innocent sales shopper. Larushka Ivan-Zadeh reviews. We continue our exploration of LGBT literature marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. The events of 28th June 1969 were a key moment in the birth of the gay rights movement. Today novelist and salon host Damian Barr reflects on growing up gay in 1990s Scotland and the queer books he loves from that decade Today is National Writing Day and Rajan Dator meets Kaoru Akagawa who is keeping alive Kana Shodo, a script developed in 10th century Japan by women, so they could write, and for women, so they could read.

For the third of Front Rows reports from the five museums and galleries shortlisted for the 2019 Art Fund Museum of the Year, we visit HMS Caroline in the Titanic Quarter of Belfast, a First World War naval cruiser, the sole survivor of the Battle of Jutland in 1916, and now a floating museum following an £18m restoration. Presenter: Rajan Datar Producer: Julian May…read more
