- ‘Is Southend Homophobic?'
LGBTQI* History Month
- 25 February 2017, 6.00pm to 9.30pm
To mark LGBTQI* History Month we are inviting everyone into the gallery for a Saturday night takeaway!
Over food we will ask what life is like for LGBTQI* people in Essex, question if our town is homophobic and/or transphobic and attempt to answer some questions you have about the LGBTQI* community.
Local artist Scottee will chair the dinner alongside Southend based LGBTQI* artists, thinkers and doers. This will be followed by a performance from the trans, queer, riot grrrl punk band T-Bitch.
There will be queer zines for sale.
Everyone is welcome to this free event – including your homophobic Nan.
6.00pm to 8.00pm
Saturday Night Takeaway
8.30pm to 9.30pm
Scottee is an artist who makes work about outsiderness and was recently included in the Independent's Rainbow List as one of Britain's most influential LGBTQI* people.
T-Bitch are a band promoting queer visibility and dressing up! They are part transvestite punk, part Riot Grrrl, all noise, free of social expectations and stereotypes.
