Riot Act

This beautiful online adaption of the critically acclaimed Riot Act returns for LGBT History Month and will be available to stream throughout February to celebrate LGBT History Month 2022.

Following a West End run and touring the UK, this online ‘reimagining’ has been created using interviews with a Stonewall survivor, a radical drag artist, and an AIDS activist.

Alexis Gregory’s verbatim solo show is a hard-hitting, yet hilarious ride through six decades of queer history, directed by Stonewall (1995) writer Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE, taking the viewer right up to the present day. Read More

Red ribbon

The RSA Fellow-led LGBT Network are hosting this free event for LGBTQ+ History Month.

Ash Kotak, a journalist, playwright, and the founder and CEO of AIDS Memorial UK, will be the guest speaker and he will be talking about the Project to raise a memorial to the people who have lived and died of HIV/AIDS.

Ash will also talk about his work in the LGBTQ+ community during the AIDS pandemic, the play he is writing about Freddie Mercury and his growing awareness that there should be a memorial to the people who have lived and died of HIV/AIDS.

The memorial will be erected on Tottenham Court Road near the clinic where the first man known to have HIV was diagnosed and treated and became a beacon of hope (and despair) for many over the years. Read about the AIDS Memorial and Register for the event.

Queer Britain wants to change this so that future generations can see themselves represented in history.
