The Kings Arms

My Gay Best Friend (and other unspoken letters of LGBTQIA+ Identity) is returning for its second year!It feels now more than ever, with the world so divided, we need an event to uplift and celebrate the LGBTQIA+ voices in a safe environment, whist also bringing awareness towards the daily struggles and battles members of the community face on a day-to-day basis.What one thing that you’ve wanted to say to your straight mates but never had the chance to?How much of our struggles and joys do straight people really know about the LGBTQIA+ community?‘My Gay Best Friend’ is the event that aims to be an annual anthology series in which we commission LGBTQIA+ identifying writers to express their personal and political opinions of something that are often left unspoken. Sometimes comical, sometimes emotional, sometimes political, but always honest and personal to the writer. These monologues/letters/speeches will be written and sealed, before being opened and read by the straight identifying actors live for the first time on the night in front of the audience.For this year’s event, we will commission 5 new pieces of work spoken aloud for the very first time live on stage.
CONTENT NOTES: This performance will engage with themes of gender and sexual discrimination. It will contain subject matter that may be upsetting or triggering to some audiences.
