Colourful Stories: a queer retelling of Liverpool’s history

On Thursday 31st March at the Royal Standard, Comics Youth will present Colourful Stories: A Queer Retelling of Liverpool’s History

The exhibition has been created by young people as part of the Safe Spaces Reclaiming Community Spaces project funded by the I Will Fund. 

Queer culture has been erased from the history books for centuries, leaving so many with little knowledge of their heritage and identity. The very little information available often only covers major cities like London, Manchester, and Brighton. 

Similarly, those depicting Liverpool’s history often look to a traditional and heteronormative route, completely omissing a single thought to Liverpool’s vibrant and diverse queer scene. At Colourful Stories we aim to explore the unique history and wide range of experiences that come with being a queer individual in Liverpool.

The exhibition will be open for one day only at the Royal Standard on Thursday 31st March, open from 12 – 5pm during the day, followed by a celebration event, from 6 – 8pm.

For any enquiries about attending the event, contact ella@comicsyouth.co.uk or gen@comicsyouth.co.uk
