Queer Theory: God Is Gay

About Queer Theory: God Is Gay

“This writer is gay,
and the priest, in the old love of his church,
kneeling to pray.
The farmer is gay, baling the gold hay
out in the fields,
and the teacher, cycling to school each day.
The politician is gay,
though he fears to say,
knotting his tongue, his tie;
and the doctor is gay,
taking your human pulse in her calm way.
The scientist is gay,
folding the origami of DNA,
and the judge, in his grey wig, is gay.
The actress is gay,
spotlit in the smash-hit play;
the butcher, the baker, the candlestick-maker,
our children, are gay.
And God is gay.”
‘After Orlando: Gay Love’ by Carol Ann Duffy, 2016

Fundraising: We will be raising funds for MindOut, a mental health charity for LGBTQ people. Nice n Sleazy will be providing us with a raffle, putting out donation buckets, and giving a portion of their proceeds to MindOut. Queer Theory’s proceeds will all be shared amongst performers and DJs as usual. Find out more about MindOut here: https://mindout.org.uk/

Venue accessibility: we are using the basement venue that is only accessible by stairs. Nice n Sleazy’s toilets are gender neutral. The venue has a safe space policy and will have a safe spaces rep working on the event.

Covid: Vaccine passports will be required to enter the venue during club hours (after 11pm). We encourage all attendees to take a lateral flow (and preferably a PCR test if possible) before the event. All attendees will be required to enter their details into track and trace. Masks should be worn (unless you’re exempt) when moving around the venue such as going to the bar or bathroom. We will be strictly observing Nice n Sleazy’s capacity rules.

We recommend arriving early to ensure entry, and especially if you’d like a seat to watch the show.
