Support Us


Homotopia is vital. Homotopia is a very visible representation of the LGBTQIA voice in the arts, and has been so for 15+ years. It means so much to so many people. Our trustees, staff and audience can all cite the moments in their lives their saw a Homotopia poster, popped into an exhibition, or visited a show.

We are unapologetically queer. Unapologetic queerness through art means we make LGBTQIA people feel safe, find a place in society, and find a voice.

Friends of Homotopia can make sure that next moment can happen when an LGBTQIA person engages with Homotopia and it makes them feel safe, in a community they can call theirs, and helps them find their voice.

Support our yearly Homotopia Festival with a monthly donation or one off payment. Email for more info.

Below are more options for specific programmes we run.


Homotopia relies on the generous support of donors to deliver our Artist Development Programme QueerCore.

Do you believe in increasing diversity in the arts and raising LGBTQIA voices? Homotopia needs you!

Here’s your chance to champion emerging new talent and build a bright future for the UK’s longest running LGBTQIA arts and cultural festival.

You can help us to support and commission theatre makers, performance artists and writers to make art that challenges the status quo and champions LGBTQIA rights in new and fresh ways. QueerCore funded artists will perform at Homotopia Festival 2020.

The more you donate, the more we can commission and support!

Other previous QueerCore supported performances and artists include:

Gay Black theatre Rent Party
Rent Party
Hip Hip I'm Gay
Ashleigh Owen


Homotopia relies on the generous support of donors to deliver our Youth Programme.

Do you believe young people need a platform to speak about their experiences of being young and queer?

We work with LGBTQIA young people aged 14-18 in making exciting, engaging performance art about gender and sexual identity. This work is then presented in collaboration with education authorities to schools, community groups and conferences.

It is really important for younger children to see role models only slightly older talking about this in a relatable way, hence we focus on primary schools. Our ambitions to increase education around, and decrease bullying based on LGBTQIA identity.

Our recent production at Blackburne House (Homotopia Festival 2019) as part of ‘Travis Alabanza and Friends’ was a sell out success and recieved much praise for its power and poignancy of message by audiences.

Why Should You Support Us?


Every year, our key supporters are invited to tea times, dinners and other special events with our headline artists. For instance, in 2018, our tea time with John Walters went down a hoot!


As a key supporter you will be named and thanked in our yearly Homotopia Festival brochure and on our website (if you wish to of course!).


We will let you know the full programme before anyone else, and keep you in the loop about what we are up to, with exclusive email updates and events.
