Event Details

Join us for an evening of spoken word, film and music to celebrate Gloucester’s women as part of Lesbian Visibility Week.

The evening will include the premiere of a short film created by Gen-z filmmaker Anna Mouzouri, commissioned by Voices Gloucester. In this 6 minute experiential film Anna tells the story of celebrating lesbian spaces: places to gather, to be liberated, to think and connect.

Following the success of our Queer City Voices event in November 2023 the evening will be hosted by Emma Clowsley*, and will feature performances from Gloucestershire’s first LGBTQ+ choir Queer Voices Gloucestershire. The Gloucester based rainbow singing group will showcase a variety of acapella songs from the LGBTQ+ and civil rights movements, traditional folk and contemporary genres. There will be original compositions from Director Zora McDonald* including ‘ I can be me’, commissioned by Voices Gloucester in 2022 based on the lived experience of choir members.

The evening will also feature excerpts from Ladyfriends, and performances by member of Gloucester’s young queer community.

The event is free but please book here to reserve your spot.
