Homotopia launched in 2004 and is a Liverpool based arts & social justice organisation making art, interventions and participation that inspires and unites communities. Every November it presents an annual festival of local, national and international LGBT+ arts & culture featuring an eclectic programme including theatrical world premieres, contemporary dance, visual art, debate, youth & community participation, heritage & film.

Programming trailblazers, new commissions, exhibitions and award winning social justice projects and education outreach work throughout the year.

Homotopia was founded in response to Liverpool’s bid for European Capital Of Culture 2008 and was a highlight of these celebrations.  2018 will mark our 15th birthday  and the festival has become one of the key cultural festivals in the region.

Homotopia curated a year-long ‘Tom Of Finland Retrospective’ in Turku, Finland as part of their European Capital Of Culture 2011. The same exhibition toured to the Kulturhuset in Stockholm attracting over 140,000 across the 2 shows. We have also developed projects in Poland and Turkey.

We curated and presented a major exhibition on the life of Liverpool born trans pioneer Dr April Ashley MBE at the Museum of Liverpool which attracted 900,00 visitors and was extended twice due to popularity.
