QUEER ALL ABOUT IT

Welcome to QUEER ALL ABOUT IT – Green Carnation’s ongoing digital project celebrating diverse queer stories and new perspectives. .

These are stories we care about. Topics that we feel must be explored, discussed and interrogated. We work with a range of partners – LGBTQ+ charities, academics, artists and individuals – to help us to understand some of the complex questions and issues surrounding LGBTQ+ experiences.

Thanks to generous support from National Lottery and Arts Council England, we have been commissioned four emerging LGBTQ+ writers to develop four monologues, each responding to a different subject: 30+ years of HIV, LGBTQ+ families, LGBTQ+ immigration, and faith & sexuality. Working with Bloody Bandit Productions, these scripts were produced as short films, alongside separate talking head interview films with LGBTQ+ individuals and charity representatives.

Inspired by Mark Gatiss’ 2017 Queers monologue series, commemorating 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality, the Queer All About It monologue commissions celebrate contemporary queer experiences and showcases new LGBTQ+ writing talent. The films aim to move people. raise awareness and stimulate conversation around sensitive subjects
