QUEERCIRCLE Launch Festival

It’s time for us to carve out a new niche, grab our friends and queers and really celebrate the community. QUEERCIRCLE is a brand new online platform that’s dedicated to doing just that. We want to celebrate new queer artists, educate on queer history, and support everyone in the community.

This is a four-day spectacle celebrating queer art, literature and performances.

To coincide with the launch of our new website, QUEERCIRCLE will be providing a space, in partnership with LimeWharf, to celebrate the work of a wide-ranging collection of UK-based queer artists, activists and organisations.

Throughout the 4 days, LimeWharf will house a permanent exhibition of work by the following artists:


Daragh Soden

Danny Augstine

Lucy Brown

Max Wallis

Bertil Nillsson

Lucy McRae

Gary Card

SATURDAY 22nd OCTOBER – QUEER READING 2pm – 4:30pm (First read at 2:30pm)

Curated by poet Max Wallis in partnership with Opening Doors, QUEER READS is an afternoon celebrating the best of queer writing. Looking back at some of the most important queer writers and looking forwards to the next generation, this is an event that can’t be missed. After each reading, we’ll open up to the floor in an attempt to contextualise and offer an insight into what else was happening at the time of writing.
“My Brother the Devil”
+ Q&A with Director Sally El Hosaini and LGBT Against Islamophobia

“Two teenage brothers must face their own prejudices head-on if they are to survive the perils of being British Arabs growing up on the streets of gangland London.”

Dan Glass of QUEER TOURS OF LONDON takes us through an introduction of the U.K’s queer history before leading us out into the streets of East London to explore the history of the local area.
