Midnight Picnics in Tehran


Midnight Picnics in Tehran is Leilah King’s debut pamphlet. It is a tale of two countries, three cities and an innumerable amount of drinks being thrown in people’s faces. Leilah paints striking imagery of the bustling cities of Shiraz and Tehran, the former her mother’s birthplace. She conveys a melancholic nostalgia and love for a culture still novel to her that is remembered warmly from childhood summers spent in Iran’s beautiful mountains and parks. Midnight Picnics does not only focus on Iran but talks about Leilah’s time living in Bristol and Brighton. She shares an open, honest and raw account inviting you to navigate your way through sexuality, androgyny, and anger.
