In February, UWE Bristol Library is hosting LGBT+ History Month book giveaways, to raise awareness about LGBT+ history, issues surrounding stigma, and people's personal experiences. We'll be hiding the giveaway books around our campuses, and we'll be posting location clues on our Instagram Stories. If you find a book, it's yours to keep.

This book giveaway features Despised and Rejected by Rose Allatini.

Book bio:

"Persephone Books reprints neglected books by women writers. Published in May 1918 under the pseudonym A.T. Fitzroy. 800 copies were sold before the book was deemed 'morally unhealthy and most pernicious' and the publisher was put on trial, fined and ordered to surrender the remaining 200.  
With strong themes: opposition to war, acceptance of homosexuality, tolerance of others. This book was ahead of its time, with ideas that are still very relevant today."
