QueerTown is back for its 3rd year as part of WE ARE FABULOSO Preston Park on Saturday 6th August 2022.
Featuring a QueerTown Stage curated by Queer artist Paul Diello & featuring a plethora of Queer artists, live music, cabaret, comedy, burlesque and performance art. Chow down at the street food village and enjoy the entertainment at the popular Trans Tent, QueerTown promises to be a community haven at the north end of the Park.
Curated by Paul Diello from Fourth World Promotions
Ever since I was a child I loved making compilation tapes (showing my age there!!) and putting together eclectic mixes of music. This obsession continued into adulthood and so I began Fourth World Promotions in 2017 to bring my ideas for diverse variety events to the stage. I started a monthly LGBTQ+ variety show called El Geebee Tea Queue in Brighton and have gone on to become the booker for Ironworks Studios. It always excites me to put together a running order of diverse talents across all the performance art forms and there is just so much LGBTQ+ talent in Brighton and beyond that there are no shortage of performers to choose from!
As a queer artist myself who has been performing in venues across the UK and Europe for many years both as a solo artist and with a full band, it was a really exciting prospect to create a space in my hometown for alternative LGBTQ+ performers, both up and coming and well established to come together and celebrate our queerness and diversity through entertainment.
The acts that I’ve chosen for the Queer Town stage I feel represent the exciting and broad ranges of talent the LGBTQ+ Community has to offer in 2022. I’ve worked with them all and they are all bloomin’ marvellous, we really are in for a treat!
Watch this space!
