The UK’s longest running LGBTQIA arts and cultural festival. Homotopia Festival was born and bred in Liverpool and proudly champions local, national and international queer and trans* creatives, artists and makers.
Homotopia is committed to developing, supporting and championing the most exciting new LGBTQIA creative talent in Liverpool, and across the North.
Homotopia Presents consists of projects and works of art that we support all year round outside of our festival programme, ranging from podcasts to major exhibition’s such as April Ashley: Portrait of a lady, showcasing her story as a model, actress and one of the first people in the world to undergo pioneering gender reassignment surgery, in partnership with the Museum of Liverpool.
Supported by Homotopia We work in collaboration with other organisations and artists to support them further with their development and reach. This ranges from events, public murals and specific funding and support opportunities’ for LGBTQIA artists.
A partnership project Homotopia runs with GYRO, running workshops, rehearsals and performances for a creative collective of young LGBTQIA people who are interested in self-expression through creativity and performance. Led by Associate Artist Ashleigh Owen, and a number of visiting practitioners.
