Make visible, what’s not so visible…




When things go wrong in same sex relationships…


No, this isn’t a personal declaration…

What you do when things go wrong in same-sex, bisexual and/or trans relationships is a research project of Sunderland and Leicester Universities led by Professor Catherine Donovan. It commenced in May and runs until 7th September. Whilst all responses are welcome, they are currently lacking black, ethnic minority and faith groups. Here’s how to find out more and participate.LGBTLogo

September events are here…


After much blood, sweat and tears we’re in business… Beneath the Surface is having an outing in early autumn. We’re running 6 workshop events from north to south, well south to north, with performance extracts.

In London we’re working with the Southbank Centre, building on some preliminary work done there back in April as part of Alchemy. In Sandwell we’re working with Black Country Touring and Smethwick Library reaching local grassroots communities. In Birmingham we’re working with Healthy Gay Life and Sampad at mac. In Sheffield we’re working with Sheffield Theatres, Sheffield City Council, Centre for HIV & Sexual Health and Point Blank. In Leicester we’re working with Leicester LGBT Centre and Curve Theatre. In Newcastle we’re working with GEM Arts, MESMAC North East and Pride Cafe.  It’s all very exciting!

This stage is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. GEM Arts has co-commissioned the script.
