Be Outspoken

Be Outspoken - Everyone is invited however If you're Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) & LGBTQ then Be Outspoken is the Official Leeds Pride event for you!

Pride is about celebrating our identities in a world where there are added challenges and barriers in growing up LGBTQ. These challenges are different for people from BAME backgrounds and we realise that a lot of people feel like there is "no room" for them in existing spaces.

Be Outspoken asks you to come together in advance of Leeds Pride to celebrate your identity - maybe you want to vent the frustrations of growing up feeling like an outsider, maybe you want to start a conversation about how you reconcile faith and LGBTQ identity, maybe you want to reach out to others. Whatever you do, we want you to express yourself and your views within a 5-10 minute time frame via 1) starting a conversation, 2) presenting a spoken word piece, 3) song 4) or any other art form of your choosing to the audience regarding your feelings of identifying as both BAME & LGBTQ. Ultimately, we want you to feel Pride in who you are, to be supported and to be outspoken!

This event acknowedges the generous support of the Leeds LGBT Pride Community Grant and Manchester Airport.

The event is FREE - but please reserve an Eventbrite ticket to ensure a place.

‘if the girls start moving, the boys will join in’

Pockets Theatre are delighted to present their new show IF THE GIRLS START MOVING - THE BOYS WILL JOIN IN: a theatrical dance around the bars, pubs, nightclubs, and watering-holes of queer Leeds.

“We’re supposed to be writing a show…”

David and Cassie are making a performance to mark fifty years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality, but it turns out, that’s quite hard. Their new show is neither a history lesson, a pride march, a schmaltz fest, nor a full on musical. Their quest to form a new LGBTQ+ people's republic breaths fresh life into the testimonies of Yorkshire communities who lived, celebrated, protested, mourned and ultimately survived. This show is about drag queens, about boys who eat their boyfriends, trans women that change history, Sunday dinners, our stories, our futures, and now.

IF THE GIRLS START MOVING - THE BOYS WILL JOIN IN will premiere Leeds Pride Festival 2017 - join us in our pop-up theatre space in the Corn Exchange on Saturday 5th or Sunday 6th August.
