Calling all LGBTQ people of colour and LGBTQ young people!

There will be a chance to walk in the Kiki if you’ve been practising, or just to join the supportive crowd if it’s your first time. You can attending any or all of the sessions on offer over the weekend and tickets will be on sale online shortly, or available on the door.
