I feel very honoured to be on the Governance Group for Liverpool Pride.
A native of New Brighton, but long term resident in L8, I have worked in arts venues for more than twenty years, including the Liverpool Everyman, Nottingham Playhouse, TATE Liverpool, Unity Theatre, LIPA and now FACT.
My passions are theatre, visual art and film, and I have worked at FACT in Liverpool for the last nine years . In that time I have volunteered to work on Outsiders, Liverpool's LGBT Film Festival, helped to create FACT's Gay Sunday event and organised Alt:Queer, a weekend of art, film and debate.
I believe that the Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Trans communities of Merseyside are served brilliantly by the arts organisations across the city with Homotopia at the core and I wish to ensure that Liverpool Pride carries on this excellent tradition with its own cultural programme - keep an eye on the website as more details come on line.
In 2012, we've been able to offer our second film programme, another iteration of Gay Gardens at The Bluecoat for Chill Out Sunday and collaborations with Grin Theatre and Edgehill Hill University LGBT group . It's been a very exciting time - we worked with Rotunda College, Armistead and GYRO on Sam's Story and joined forces with LFC and Mersey Marauders FC to run the Football V Homophobia 5-a-side footy tournament - mant thanks to all the teams from across te region who took part.
Looking into 2013, we'd love to have even more going on.. so get in touch if you'd like to be involved - as parter or participant!
