Looking for some lockdown weekend plans? We’ve got you covered. Stonewall Housing have put together a full two days of live entertainment from a collection of fabulous LGBTQI artists and creatives from the House of Stonewall and much more to bring to fun into your home.
From vogueing, burlesque to drag aerobics – you’re in for a treat! Contribute and tune in for a full two days of fabulous entertainment brought you to by the House of Stonewall.
The House of Stonewall is a collective of ambassadors including alumni, current service users who come together to help with Stonewall Housing initiatives, spreading the word and raising awareness and funding for the organisation which exists to provide housing support, advice and advocacy, and to influence housing policy and practice in order to improve the lives of LGBTQI people.
They help tell the stories that aren’t being heard about LGBTQI homelessness and harness their experiences to empower their art to be seen, their voices to be heard and their platforms to grow, empowering change within the LGBTQI community.
