The Homotopia arts festival is being staged at various venues around Liverpool. The celebrations begin on November 1 and end on November 20.
The activists explain on their website: “We’re tired of being angry. The simple act of living our most fabulous, out and proud queer lives, just the act of being ourselves in a cis-heteronormative world, is a protest.”
Here are the events taking place in Liverpool across the next fortnight.
Please Touch The Art (itch my brain)
A textile, sensory and immersive art experience by QueerCore artist Rhiannon May. This installation begins on November 1 and will be up for 12 days at the Everyman Theatre.
A Lovely Word- Homotopia Festival
The already popular Liverpool spoken word night is introducing Peter Scalpello, a queer artist from Glasgow to speak at their poetry night on November 3 at the Everyman Bistro.
The event starts at 8pm and has many open slots for poets who wish to share their work.
Here n Queer
A street art project focusing on bringing queer creations into areas where many have felt unsafe. It is on show in the Unity Theatre from November 16 to 20.
