TQP Queer Book Club

Over the next two months, we are venturing a bit away from the conventional novel format: Join us this month for a fun conversation about Alberto Caeiro, one of the many heteronyms of Pessoa, and his poems.

And in October we talk about the graphic novelist Cyril Pedrosa. Cyril created both eco-related and Portugal-related novels. Amongst these novels is Cyril’s semi-autobiographical Portugal - and Auto-Bio, where the quest to live more sustainable takes centre stage.

Also, behind the scenes, the Land Project group has been working incredibly hard. We now also have two complementary pods.  


The Manifesto Pod is looking at transforming our vision and mission and our ideas into a written, and importantly living document. The idea is to have an adaptable and ever evolving document that can help us to guide our future development.


The Working Persons’ Pod is embarking on making plans of how to work the land, restore buildings and create our hybrid, queer* ecovillage.  

If you wish to become a member of these pods, please send me an email at 


Lots of love from Portugal
