Homotopia is a Liverpool based arts & social justice organisation making art, interventions and participation that inspires and unites communities.

Every November we present an annual festival of local, national and international LGBT+ arts & culture.

About

50 events for the 50th anniversary of decriminalisation

26th October - 1st Dec

In its 14th year, Homotopia, the UK’s leading LGBT+ arts and culture festival, is back this autumn, reflecting on 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act. Through visual art, performance, film, theatre, talks, readings, cabaret, dance and debate, Homotopia’s theme is #Liberation50, how the past half century has shaped and affected LGBTQI art and culture.

As the 50th anniversary of 1967 comes to an end, Homotopia provides a month long platform for stories, some forgotten, some celebrated and championed. With over 50 events, the festival examines what the anniversary means for LGBTQI artists, and what the last 50 years has meant, from performing a role expected by wider society, to non-conformity and cultural identity.
