Description

Kabosh presents an exciting new production exploring the turbulent events of the first National Union of Students Lesbian and Gay Conference, held at Queens University Belfast in 1983.

The performance on Saturday 30 March will be followed by a traditional céilí!
Met by large-scale protest from the ‘Save Ulster From Sodomy’ crusade, and mounting tensions within the NUS Executive, delegates were in danger of receiving anything but a warm Irish welcome.
Set against the soundscape of 1983 Belfast: the escalating Troubles; vocal and violent opposition to homosexuality; and a thriving punk scene, A Queer Ceili at the Marty Forsyth is an exploration of a unique chapter in Belfast’s history, and a celebration of commonality and camaraderie in the face of adversity.
A premiere with the Imagine Belfast Festival of Ideas and Politics.
