Back in June, we launched a New Queers on the Block commission of £3k to develop and deliver an event which centres the LGBTQIA+ community in Bradford. We’re thrilled to announce that the commission has been awarded to Alice Parsons and Em Connor for OUT OUT.
OUT OUT is a cabaret and a catalyst for drag artists in Bradford. As well as platforming Drag Kings and alternative drag performers, OUT OUT will support the creation of new work from both first-timers and established local Kings, in combination with bringing experienced performers to Bradford for an unforgettable showcase and celebration of Queer talent.
Alice and Em bonded over a passion for Bradford’s DIY scene and a desire to see more queer nightlife in the city.
New Queers on the Block is an LGBTQIA+ artist and community development programme and network led by Marlborough Productions, working in partnership with Bradford Producing Hub and Theatre in the Mill in Bradford. Queer-led and with an intersectional approach, the project has worked with a wide range of artists working across live art, theatre, dance, spoken word, cabaret and visual art.
