“Queer spaces make us, but only because we make them.” 

Toffs nightclub in York on a Sunday night; the sweaty corners of London’s Royal Vauxhall Tavern; the house-share moved into after a bad break-up; virtually all of Brighton; and countless bookshops. When writing about queer sanctuaries, these were novelist Natasha Bell’s choices.

 

Inspired by Natasha’s blog, we invited Yorkshire artists to share their queer spaces in stories drawn from pre, mid and post pandemic. Collaborating with Ali Pidsley (Barrel Organ Theatre) and Frazer Flintham (Into The Night), Queer Spaces: Live! was a one-off event that celebrated queer lives.

 

60 minutes no interval.
