Liverpool Football Club
Last year we took part in rainbow laces and partnered with Liverpool Football Club and The Anfield Wrap podcast to create artwork representing Liverpool FC’s LGBTQIA+ fans.
The artwork was featured on a billboard situated on the side of The Albert pub in front of the Kop at Anfield, and we hosted a panel event at the Anfield club store.
Photographer Mike Parry and artist Margie Housltio worked together to represent Liverpool’s queer fan community, through a mixture of photography, illustration and graphic design.
Total impressions on socials added up to an amazing 4,700,621 between Liverpool FC and Liverpool FC Womens.
Ukraine Pride – Stay queer. No matter war
From Thursday 20th April until 18th May 2023, Homotopia collaborated with UKRAINEPRIDE to host a four week long photography and video exhibition on the third floor at Lush Liverpool. The exhibition showed the lives of queer people living and loving each other throughout war – raising awareness and showing support for one of the most marginalised communities living in Ukraine. The work by artist Artur Vovchenko, a queer photographer, multi-disciplinary artist and activist based in Ukraine. Vovchenko captured ten unique stories of the lives of queer people during the war in Kyiv and Kharkiv – through five photographs and accompanied text. The exhibition was accompanied with a special sound design from Nastya Vogan.
We had just under 10,000 (9,845 to be exact) people come up the stairs into the gallery, but we may well have had even more come up using the lift. (visitor counter only monitors the stairs).
Seven Store met up with one of our artists Rosa Kusabbi to discuss early beginnings, challenging the establishment and Dadaism ahead of her in-store exhibition as part of Homotopia’s annual celebrations.
With Kusabbi’s oeuvre acting as a conversational tool – printed, sanguine bridges merging the worlds of politics, design and feminism – as they say, “you can’t be what you can’t see,’ and in Rosa’s world, that isn’t the case.
‘Queers Through the Year’s’ by Rosa Kusabbi was on display at SEVENSTORE from 2nd – 20th November 2022.
