Dance and debate, clubs and comedy, literature and live art, plays and puppetry - just some of the experiences on offer since 1992 at Manchester's international festival of queer arts and culture, queerupnorth.
Queerupnorth began life as 'It's Queer Up North' in 1992, when it was founded by Tanja Farman and Gavin Barlow, two members of staff at Manchester venue greenroom. The idea was to provide a platform for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender art; while the name, a play on the well known phrase 'it's grim up north', was borrowed from Flesh, the legendary gay club night held at Manchester's famous Haçienda.
Queerupnorth will continue to promote the development of queer arts and culture in the UK. Whether presenting international work or commissioning and producing UK artists, whether at home in Manchester or on tour throughout the UK, whether presenting the annual international festival or working with school children in Greater Manchester, queerupnorth will continue to be creatively ambitious, culturally aware, and intellectually curious.
