Homo Sweet Homo: Queer Home Has No Borders

Screen Shot 2021-04-01 at 09.20.24 copy

Lsbians and Gays Support the Migrants are bringing you their biggest online party to date. Get ready for Homo Sweet Homo: Queer Home Has No Borders.

Why? This party will be a fundraiser for Lesvos LGBTIQ+ Refugee Solidarity, an incredible group who build community by providing a safe space for LGBTQI+ migrants in Lesvos, including by organising safe emergency shelter in extreme situations. All profits from the event will go to Lesvos LGBTIQ+ Refugee Solidarity.

The environment in Moria camp has only worsened over the past year, with the already unsanitary and unsafe conditions compounded by the threat of Covid. Residents of the camps are now essentially imprisoned and only one person per family is allowed to leave the camp once per week.

On top of this, queer refugees also have to deal with being cut off from their community – which is why the collective space of Lesvos LGBTIQ+ Refugee Solidarity is so desperately needed. They urgently require funds to support group members in emergency situations, especially as the number of LGBTQI+ asylum seekers who are part of the group is increasing.

Expect: a gorgeous mix of drag, music, readings by queer performers, speeches from LGBTQI+ refugees in Lesvos, and a final DJ set to close the last weekend of lockdown restrictions in style. 

Tickets: Unwaged £2 | Standard £5 | Solidarity £12.
