Where do we go from here? Queerness and Faith

Monday 11 November 18.30 – 20.30

Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, Chamberlain Square, B3 3DH

What does it mean to be queer and religious? What happens when faith, sexuality, and gender identity meet?

This panel discussion brings together artists from a range of religious backgrounds and practices to talk about what it means to be LGBTQ+ and religious, how their faiths inform their creative work, and discuss how we might move the conversation forward.

Join author of Unicorn: The Memoir of a Muslim Drag Queen Amrou ‘Glamrou’ Al-Kadhi, Midlands theatre-maker Zeddie Lawal, and actor and theatre-maker Barry Fitzgerald for performances and a panel discussion chaired by Amerah Saleh.

This event is presented by SHOUT Festival of Queer Arts and Culture, in partnership with Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

SHOUT SAYS: "This year in Birmingham we’ve seen some of the fiercest debates around religion and LGBTQ+ identity. These are conversations our communities need to have, so we’re bringing together four artists leading the way in exploring faith, sexuality, and gender in the UK, to talk about their work, lives, and experiences. Come along and get involved in the discussion."

IMPORTANT INFO: Suitable for ages 16+, accessible entrance to the gallery space is via the lift at the Gas Hall Entrance on Edmund Street.
