The night where LGBTQ+ adults read aloud from their REAL teenage diaries, poetry, fanfictions and more!
A handful of brave queer folk take to the mic to re-tell tales from their formative years in the name of nostalgia, solidarity, celebration. Expect a relaxed evening of cringey crushes, earnest angst, GCSE Artwork & a school-disco soundtrack (yes, we’ll be taking requests for your favourite throwback tracks) in the lovely Omnibus Café Bar.
Queer Diary splits all its profits with a local community youth organisation, supporting LGBTQ+ teenagers to have an easier time than we did. For this show we are partnering with Free2B Alliance: a London based community organisation supporting LGBTQ+ young people and their parents. They provide 1:1 and group services in schools and in the community including trans groups, challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia and provide LGBTQ+ awareness training to schools and organisations to promote inclusivity. They seek to provide safe spaces and champion empowerment, acceptance and a place where you are Free2B!
Queer Diary is hosted by Beth Watson, who has been running these events regularly on Zoom since April 2020.
