#DemandChange

For Belfast Pride 2017 we set out to ‘Demand Change’ - the theme for the festival reflected our position as the only part of Western Europe without Marriage Equality in society that still has a long way to go until we have equal rights for LGBTQ people.

One of the ways we demanded change was ‘Poetry with Pride’ - a night of poetry readings from some of the best and brightest of Belfast’s LGBT+ community: Conor Cleary, Padraig Regan, Gail McConnell and Paul Maddern. Hosted and organised by poet and writer Toby Buckley, the event took place on Sunday 6th August at the Sunflower Public House and played to a full house.

We also commissioned new poems from LGBTQ poets for ‘Demand Change’, a limited-run pamphlet of poems by queer writers. The booklet features a selection of the poems submitted including poems from Conor Cleary, Sara Falkstad, Dawn Watson, Gail McConnell, Mícheál McCann, Paul Maddern and Carla Rowney and all proceeds are going towards poetry events at Belfast Pride 2018.
