BY SOPHIE GRIFFITHS

Even in these strange times, Brighton Fringe’s Autumn Season is back for 2020 with plenty of queer content coming your way.

With more than 50 events taking place in a COVID-safe way across Brighton, as well as online, it’s time to get excited. Here are some of DIVA’s top LGBTQI picks from the Fringe this year, ranging from comedy to theatre, running until the end of October. 🌈

Queers On The Fringe by Maeve Marden 

Where: Online 

“Charmingly chaotic, with a pocket full of heart, wit and rage, Maeve will draw on her work as a theatre maker, curator of Queerstories, creator of award-winning cabaret and improviser of terrible dad jokes, to offer up the unexpected, equal parts playful, personal and political. ‘Queers on the Fringe’ celebrates Sydney’s queer underground, which still has some grit despite the flashy corporate vibe for which the city is known. This ain’t Mardi Gras. It’s Fringe.”

Where Mermaids Are Born by Stambolsky/Ningyo 

Where: Online 

“A contemporary dance and video art play that addresses gender identity issues as a way to explore and develop a creative universe – beyond conventional approaches and gender roles. The show submerges its audience into the myth of mermaids, a reference to female gender identity and its perception in Western civilisation.”

Comedy For The Curious by Robyn Perkins 

Where: Online

“The stand-up, science chat show that delves into all life questions, both comedically & scientifically. Host Robyn Perkins (Sydney Fringe 2019 Comedy Award Winner) is joined by two guest comics to bring you interesting science comedy, hilarious (non-science) comedy & great chat.”

S.L.A.G.S by Lucien Jack 

Where: The Caxton Arms 

“Are you single and ready to mingle? Do you need a partner in time for your Christmas party? Comedian Lucien Jack, aka Kettering’s 6th Most Famous Face of 2019, might have the answer in the form of his new socially distanced show S.L.A.G.S.

Standing for “Sexy Loose and Gorgeous Singles’” the one hour show includes dating inspired stand-up comedy and games requesting audience participation from the comfort of their seats. In addition, every night of the show will have a guest S.L.A.G, in the form of a performer joining for the entire show.”
