The QSC is an informal group that aims to make UP more inclusive of queer identity through creative writing and expression. GALA is an organisation started by Graeme Reid in 1996 that aims to collect personal records and literature that discusses queer identity. They have produced documentaries, plays, exhibitions, fiction and non-fiction books. Books such as Queer Africa aim to act as a springboard for emerging writers, and to support the value of queer themes. GALA is hosting book launches for Queer Africa 2 on 3 and 23 August in Johannesburg at Love books and The OTHER Foundation.
