QUEERING THE CITY

Presented by Birmingham 2022 Festival, Queering the City was a collaboration between local LGBTQIA+ communities, artist Lucy Hayhoe, SHOUT Festival and Birmingham LGBT.   

 

During workshops participants were asked to dream, design, and realise three new queer spaces. The only restrictions were that it must be for one person at a time and no larger than a phone booth. 

The three new artworks presented celebrate the different experiences of Birmingham's diverse queer communities and the spaces they inhabit and create in the city, but they also raise important questions about the ongoing and increasing need for these spaces in the current socio-political climate.

 

Many thanks to all of those that took part in the workshops and shared their experiences of the past and hopes for the future.
