Homotopia Festival are holding a plethora of cultural events across the city throughout November that will both entertain and offer opportunity for debate. The festival organisers are keen to hi-light key events that may be of particular interest to local women, with great discounts available. These interesting events providing a platform for women giving their voice to key issues include:
Diva Debate: You Gotta Have Faith 12th Nov Unity Theatre
Join Diva editor Jane Czyselska and veteran human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell to discuss faith with Christian commentator and musician Vicky Beeching, Rose Neelam, a Muslim and Project Director of Safra, and lesbian Rabbi Ariel Friedlander. Half price tickets available for Mojisola Abebayo if you also book for this event.
Hi, Anxiety explores one person’s (actually, two people’s…) experience of mental illness. With one in four of us estimated to experience mental illness, Debs Gatenby’s one woman show is a laugh out loud funny yet wistful look at how mental illness affected her. And her mum. As Deb says: “It’s two breakdowns for the price of one, an emotional meal deal.” Quote The Women's Org when booking for concessionary tickets.
