QUEER ALL ABOUT IT is Green Carnation’s ongoing digital project exploring themes with in our theatre projects and other issues that affect the LGBTQ+ community through film, articles and interviews.

Thanks to generous support from National Lottery and Arts Council England, we will be commissioning 4 new scripts as part of QUEER ALL ABOUT IT, each exploring specific themes within LGBTQ+ culture. These scripts will be developed and released as short films alongside informative videos discussing the themes explored.

Our QUEER ALL ABOUT IT commissions aim to showcase and develop new LGBTQ+ writing, and to explore and celebrate diverse LGBTQ+ experiences.
