We are very excited to announce a new series of online programming taking place from 27th-31st July. CHATEAU ONLINE will include events, workshops, live sessions and parties to celebrate queer culture and support the LGBTQ+ community in SE London. The events are being organised by the wonderful team at The Chateau, and supported by Southwark LGBT Network.
Tickets for all events are Free or Pay What You Can/Donation, with all proceeds going to METRO Charity and UK QTIBIPOC Hardship Fund. Event and booking details are below, or all events can also be accessed through The Chateau’s Outsavvy page here: https://www.outsavvy.com/organiser/the-chateau
From The Chateau: “We’ve assembled a group of people we love and respect to bring YOU one week of shimmering queer happenings right to your living room, all in aid of two incredible causes – METRO Charity and UK QTIBIPOC Hardship Fund. The Chateau stands in vocal solidarity BLACK LIVES MATTER and with the Black queer and trans community, in fighting the systemic racism that plagues our society. These events will centre Black and POC artists from The Chateau community, who we celebrate this month and always.”
METRO provides health, community and youth services across London and the South East for anyone experiencing issues around sexuality, gender, equality, diversity or identity. Find out more info here: https://metrocharity.org.uk/
