Kate Charlesworth at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery


To coincide with the launch of her new book Sensible Footwear: A Girl’s Guide, cartoonist and artist Kate Charlesworth will be in conversation with Adele Patrick, Creative Development Manager from Glasgow Women’s Library.

Sensible Footwear presents a glorious pageant of LGBTQI+ history, past personal and political milestones from the 1950s to the present day.

‘Sensible Footwear is a stunning achievement –  as a graphic study of LGBT history, and as a memoir of growing up gay in the 1950s onwards.  Kate’s fluid and tellingly detailed drawing reveals not only the frustrations and traumas of lesbian life, but also the laughter and camaraderie… and a glorious cavalcade of gay icons.’ Posy Simmonds

This event will be held at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and is free to attend—no booking is necessary.
