Hey! Its been a while, here’s an update of what the team at Homotopia have been up to. Starting with some artist opportunities you might have missed. . .
The Homotopia Writers Award
The Everyman and Playhouse script submissions are open and we’re so happy to be partnering with them to offer one LGBTQIA+ writer The Homotopia Writers Award.
The opportunity is for a professional rehearsed reading or workshop and a £500 seed commission towards developing their work. The subject matter of a submitted script for the award should explore LGBTQIA identities, challenges, experiences and culture.
Queer Creatives Meet-up
From Thursday 17th June and every third Thursday of the month after that join us in the Unity bar for a friendly and inclusive meet-up with local LGBTQIA artists, makers and creators. This is your chance to meet new creative collaborators, seek career advice and have a lovely time with liked-minded queer pals.
This is a free, informal event. To RSVP please email firstname.lastname@example.org - the first event has a capacity of 20 people so get yourself signed up! This mixer will take place in the U1 Theatre, and be socially distanced.

And lastly, some more good news, we’re delighted to have welcomed Olivia Graham onto our team in a new role as Marketing and Development Manager and Ruth Fawcett our freelance fundraising consultant. We’re excited to have both roles contribute to the overall reach, development and growth of our organisation. Alongside this we’re delighted to have three new trustees Jess Shannon, Sinéad Nunes and Steven Welsh. Welcome to the family!
