QUEER ALL ABOUT IT

Welcome to Queer All About It – Green Carnation’s ongoing digital project exploring themes within our theatre projects and other issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community.

These are topics we care about. Subjects that we feel must be explored, discussed and interrogated. We work with a range of partners – from LGBTQ+ charities, to academics, to artists – to help us to understand some of the complex questions and issues surrounding LGBTQ+ experiences, through film, articles and interviews.
