Sing And Fight! Queer Film Night

Following a sold-out screening in Edinburgh at The Fruitmarket Gallery, Queer Film Night 'Sing and fight!' is coming to Glasgow!

Sing And Fight! Queer Film Night

About Sing And Fight! Queer Film Night

Floating drag queens, singing fish, safer sex commercials by famous artists; these are just some of the ways that AIDS activism and LGBT liberation is explored in this one-off screening of musical films, some never shown before in the UK.


All films subtitled and captioned in English. All intros and Q&A interpreted in British Sign Language (BSL). Venue wheelchair accessible. See below for more detail.

A film screening at Deep End: Artists’ Space, Glasgow showcasing the absurd, political and queer musical films of John Greyson. The first event in Glasgow from Edinburgh Artists' Moving Image Festival - EAMIF , organised in collaboration with HIV Scotland and Pollyanna queer cabaret.

Alongside rarely shown musical short films from the 1980s, the event centres on clips from Zero Patience (1993). The film uses the unlikely form of song and dance to tell the story of the unfairly stigmatised, supposed ‘patient zero’ of the AIDS epidemic in North America. The films are as ridiculous as they are moving and (as our screening in Edinburgh showed) they will probably make you both laugh and cry.

Followed by a Skype Q&A with the director in Canada, plus in-person conversation with HIV Scotland hosted by Miss Annabel Sings.

Miss Annabel Sings is an activist, video artist, and Edinburgh’s Queen of Queer Cabaret, who works with Artlink Edinburgh and in NHS hospitals, using the power of performance to enact positive change for people living with dementia and mental health.

This is a one-off event of rarely shown films. Pre-booking strongly advised.
In order to make this event more accessible to those on a low income, we use a sliding scale ticket price for our events. You can choose what you pay based on your circumstances – you won’t be asked for any proof / ID, we just ask that you use the price guide on the ticket booking page and are honest!

The event takes place at The Deep End: Artists’ Space, 21 Nithsdale Street, Glasgow G41 2PZ.
Off Pollokshaws Road in the Southside, behind World Foods supermarket.
The Deep End opened in summer 2019 and is a new arts space in the Southside.

The venue is on the ground floor and step free. It is accessed by a sloped path. There is some uneven surfaces on the path. There is an accessible toilet. The entrance and corridors are wide. However the door to the room for the screening is approximately 84cm wide.

Organised by Edinburgh Artists' Moving Image Festival. Made possible through the support of The Fruitmarket Gallery and HIV Scotland for the Edinburgh event. Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.

Queer Film Night are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
