Nearly 5 years ago I wrote an open letter to 105 MSPs to thank them for voting for equal marriage in Scotland. It was read by about 250,000 people in the space of a week – mainly because it addressed some of the horrific bullying I experienced in and around school, and spoke of my hope for a new future for young queers like me.
Next year, LGBT inclusive education will be introduced to all state run Scottish schools and Civil Disobedience supported by some incredible artists are taking this show, that was built around that letter, on tour.
We’re playing some brilliant venues throughout LGBT History Month – but we also want to take it directly into the spaces where most of the damaging experiences of our youth occur.
Drag queens, musicians and stand up comedians feature. Legs Akimbo this is not. Please become a champion of this project by donating whatever you can afford.
I wanna take you to a gay bar, gay bar!
You can find our more about the show here.
