For all you folks up in Manchester, or those visiting in February, there will be a Queer Riot happening! It’ll be at the Contact Theatre, and run by the tireless, fearsome and downright lovely people who organise Ladyfest (Manchester) and Queeruption (Manchester), it will be a mixture of discussions, workshops, feminist and queer performances and friendly sociability.
To quote their own statement, the event is to “Fight back against the cuts and help create queer culture in a time of austerity.” To keep very much in the spirit of the event, it’s free!! It’s happening on Saturday 12th Feb, from 4pm-7.30pm, though I’m sure the effects will ripple on a lot longer. An antidote to the times we’re living in. Viva la queer avant garde, viva la revolution!
