Neil Bartlett is a queer renaissance man.  Director, performer, translator, and writer etc.  His art has collected many Awards  (including The Perrier, Time Out Dance and Theatre Awards, Writers Guild and even more admirers.  Even HM The Queen honored him with an OBE.

Of all of his talents and achievements, it’s as a chronicler of queer history that makes Bartlett a hero in Queerguru’s eyes.  From his splendid first book Who Was That Man, which showed how the gay history of London in the 1890s affected Bartlett’s life as a gay man in London in the 1980s  to his latest novel Address Book.

His passionate interest in how our past has shaped our queer present and future is such a sheer joy. So we jumped at the opportunity to talk to him about this on the eve of the publishing of Address Book by Inkandescent
