Every November we present Homotopia Festival, the UK’s longest running LGBTQIA arts and culture festival, featuring a variety of LGBTQIA+ art across multiple venues and outdoor spaces in the city. In addition to our festival, we have a year-round programme of artist development, public artworks, and events.
