Superbia Monthly Newsletter - December
December at Superbia!
December begins with World AIDS Day, an international day of remembrance, activism, celebration and reflection. In 2017 we instigated the first ever Day With(out) Art for Manchester, harnessing art and creativity to draw attention to HIV and AIDS in inventive ways.
For Day With(out) Art 2018* there’s an even more diverse programme of events happening across the city which we’re proud to gather under the Day With(out) Art banner. Choir performances, workshops, theatre, art exhibitions, cabaret, clubs and more are all featured.
Click here for the full listing and be sure to join us at the LGBT Foundation on World AIDS Day to watch six exclusive and inspirational new short films about how activists are facing HIV and AIDS in the US, ahead of the annual Vigil in Sackville Gardens.
TransBareAll is a trans-led voluntary organisation that works with trans people to explore feelings and decisions around bodies, sexual health and intimacy. 2019 is their 10th anniversary year and to celebrate they are producing a book filled with art and writing reflecting on the past ten years and more widely on experiences of gender and being transgender. They are looking for participant so get involved!
