Event Website

Join us for a multifaceted creative exploration of sexuality, gender and community, themed around LGBT+ rainbow flags. Infused with wellbeing and connection, we’ll move through the Progress Pride flag’s colours and meanings. From manifestos, spells and incantations to movement practice, through to our connections to ecology and the elements. In a safe and contained environment, we’ll support each other around grief and loss. We’ll celebrate relationships and sexualities, in their kaleidoscope of forms.

Anyone with an interest in writing and creative wellness can attend. Members of the LGBTQIA+ community, of all intersectional, gender and sexual identities are heartily welcomed. This will be a safe and inclusive environment where gender, gender expression and sexualities are respected and celebrated.


Places are limited to 15; we anticipate reaching capacity. To register your interest, please add your contact details on this form and we’ll be in touch soon:

Course Dates: Mondays 7 – 9pm (GMT); Feb 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd; Mar 1st, 8th
