About The Book

Let Us Eat Cake charts the process of Anthony Luvera and a group of seven LGBTQ+ people as they create work for Queer Visions of Peace, a project that celebrates the queer communities of Northern Ireland during a time of conflict transformation.

Let Us Eat Cake participants share their experiences, observations, photographs, and anything else they find interesting, as a document of their work together.

In 2017 the rights of LGBTQ+ people across the United Kingdom may appear to be equal and secure. However, in Northern Ireland today, marriage equality for queer people does not exist as it does elsewhere in the UK or in the Republic of Ireland. Reported homophobic hate crimes have risen year on year for almost a decade, and hate crime against trans people is not even accounted for within the law. Additionally, political activities taking place in Stormont related to LGBTQ+ rights, abortion, HIV and AIDS, and creationism, have contributed to the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (a federation of campaigning organisations from 132 countries) to rate NI as the worst place for queer people in the United Kingdom.
