Another week, another festival...

But in this case, it's IndigNation, our monthly LGBT Pride Festival! This year, we have a logo!

We also have a theme: looking back at our heritage. It's not reflected in all our events, but it is in some. Click on the link to see the calendar properly:

Specific timings for each of our events is listed here. Since this is a literary blog, I'll advertise only the literary events specifically. (I curated the last two, btw!)
