This weekend, to celebrate the long awaited arrival of HOMOBLOC, we’re hosting a glorious weekend of queer culture, performance, film and conversation
On Saturday, feed your belly and your ears with brunch, cocktails and Paulette on the decks to start your day right before Homobloc begins. Book a table at Bistrotheque or find a spot in the Lounge.
Panel discussion ‘There goes the Gaybourhood‘ (12:00) explores the people, movements and historical moments that have firmly planted the rainbow flag into the ground today. Later in the afternoon (14.00), author Niven Govinden joins Adelle Stripe for a conversation and reading from his Gordon Burn Prize-Shortlisted book, This Brutal House (2019)
When Sunday comes around, revive yourself after a day and night of dancing with a wind down brunch ‘Homobloc Ruined My Lunch’, featuring more cocktails, more eggs, Stav B on the decks and for one brunch only, the outrageous and inimitable David Hoyle will be manning the front desk at Bistrotheque as Guest Maître D, generally fluffing and offering some pearls of wisdom. Book a table at Bistrotheque for front row seats.
For those looking to hide from daylight, Manchester’s LGBTQ film club Make A Scene once again take over the Mini Cini with a special day of films celebrating QUEER HEDONISM. Enjoy French rent boy drama SAUVAGE, camp classic SHOWGIRLS and the decedent VELVET GOLDMINE.
