LGBT Arts Showcase at Hastings Pride 2019

ASIDE FROM WRITING SCIENCE-FICTION, I also became involved in organising the Arts Tent at Hastings Pride 2019, where the Hastings & Rother Rainbow Alliance (HRRA) hosted QUILTBAG, a celebration of LGBT Arts.

Hastings Pride 2019 takes place at The Oval, Bohemia Road (A21), Hastings TN34 1EU. The final line-up was as follows:

Hastings Pride

The inaugural Hastings Pride took place in 2017, celebrating the local LGBT community with a parade through Hastings town centre and a full day of festivities at The Oval, Hastings. Hastings Pride in 2019 will take place on Sunday 25th August, once again at The Oval in Hastings, with a full afternoon and evening programme of entertainment and events.

The theme for Hastings Pride 2019 was "Heroes", marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York, which served as a catalyst for the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world. QUILTBAG, the HRRA Arts Tent at Hastings Pride, set out to celebrate the work and lives of LGBT artists, the unsung heroes who through their work continue to challenge those who deny the community a place in society.

"QUILTBAG" is a light-hearted all-encompassing LGBT+ acronym that stands for Queer/Questioning, Undecided, Intersex, Lesbian, Transgender, Bisexual, Asexual (or Ally), Gay/Genderqueer.

Thanks! Steph.
