Storyhouse is a safe space.

Storyhouse Queer weekend (24-26 February) will be a space to come together, to feel safe, to celebrate each other, to feel joy.

Storyhouse is and always will be a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community to be celebrated and supported.

In light of recent events, we are making the Explore Your Identity workshop with SK Shlomo at Storyhouse Queer free, so that young people can explore and celebrate their identities without barriers.

Let your voice be heard.
Explore Your Identity with SK Shlomo
Saturday 25 February, 3pm – Garret Theatre, Storyhouse.

Another free event at Storyhouse Queer is Queer Stories, a spoken word and writing workshop using queer figures as inspiration.

Let your voice be heard.
