About the Event

Please Note This event is not at Live Art Bistro (Leeds)

New Queers on the Block is a new touring scheme showcasing some of the artists they work with in a celebration of all things queer. The night will feature some of the finest international queer work from Rachael Young, Hester Chillingworth, Stacy Makishi & Malik Nashad Sharpe, hosted by Ophelia Bitz. Plus, in each town they visit, there will be a local LGBTQ+ artist joining the ranks.

Expect shows about being a queer black woman channelling the power of Grace Jones, memories of a queer childhood, reclaiming your faith with the help of pop music, and black melancholy through the legacy of Tupac.

New Queers on the Block is a scheme supporting the development of LGBTQ+ artists & audiences across the UK developed by The Marlborough Theatre.

Heres what people are saying about our line-up:

Stacy Makishi – “Brilliant” The Guardian

Malik Nashad Sharpe – “a raw portrait of black, queer identity and politics” Exeunt Magazine
