Join Laura Lam on YouTube, in conversation with Sister Carmen Eileen from The Order of Perpetual Indulgence, a group of queer activist drag nuns who contribute to community events, protests, and charities worldwide, and fight for a better future for all LGBTQ+ people. We'll discuss the inspiration for Seven Devils, the continuing popularity of LGBTQ+ literature, why marginalised representation matters, and whether the future really is queer.

Described as "Mad Max: Fury Road in space" and "a space opera with occasional lesbian snogging", Seven Devils follows seven resistance fighters who will free the galaxy from the ruthless Tholosian Empire or die trying. It's a thrilling, fast-paced feminist adventure with a diverse cast of queer characters, in a messy but hopeful future; definitely relatable in 2020!
