Returning for its ninth year, Homotopia is back in Liverpool this autumn with visual arts, performance, film and debate that reflects the non-heterosexual experience.

The festival theme this year is Traditional Family Values, encompassing more than 35 events including new commissions and world premières that celebrate and explore ‘the family’ in all its queer diversity.

Describing this year’s festival, Homotopia Director Gary Everett said, “Politicians and religious leaders continue to attack gay and trans people's human rights at home and abroad making festivals like Homotopia ever more pertinent.

"We present this cornucopia of controversial, camp and colourful culture as a proud demonstration of the rich wealth of talent that exists within our queer family.”
