t(art) pride

1 - 24 july 2022

A gorgeously queer festival celebrating YOU!

 

This festival took place last year. It was a fabulous month of workshops, performances, and social events in Oxford.


Say boo to cishet normativity, and say hello to self expression instead! From celebrating queer bodies at life drawing, to meeting new trans, nonbinary, and intersex friends at Fruit Salad, there's something for all you darlings.

 

Experience the magic of the London ballroom scene and learn to vogue with the legendary Jay Jay Revlon. Show your body some love at queer yoga, an hour of breath, movement and relaxation. Find gender-affirming clothes at G(end)er Swap. Share your story at Queer Voices. Try something new at Queerlesque. And come and see the iconic cabaret show OxPHWOARd, displaying powerful queerness in all its gorgeous, dazzling forms.

All of our events have a safe space policy, so you can be your authentic self without fear. Our events are all in accessible venues with detailed accessibility information on each event description. We believe in intersectionality and that queer experiences are hugely diverse, and that diversity deserves to be showcased. And most importantly, we believe that you are wonderful and powerful and valid ❤
