shado is taking up residency in Bermondsey Project Space for two weeks in celebration of LGBTQI+ history month. This year, we are focusing specifically on the experiences of, and barriers faced by, those seeking gender or sexual asylum.
The residency showcases a collection of events and exhibition to celebrate the unifying aspects of love without borders.
We will be joined by Tanaka Fuego on the evening for a live spoken word performance, as well as talks by Help Refugees and Say It Loud Club.
