QueerTown is back for it’s 2nd year as part of Pride In The Park at the Pride Festival on Preston Park on Saturday 3rd August 2019.
Featuring a QueerTown Stage curated by Queer artist Paul Diello & featuring over 10 Queer artists, live music, cabaret, comedy, burlesque and performance art. Chow down at the street food village and enjoy the entertainment at the popular Trans Tent, QueerTown promises to be a community haven at the north end of the Park.

Curated by Paul Diello from Fourth World Promotions

It was a great honour to be asked to curate the Queer Town stage again as I have attended and celebrated at Brighton Pride every year since I moved here in 2002.

Ever since I was a child I loved making compilation tapes (showing my age there!!) and putting together eclectic mixes of music. This obsession has continued into adulthood and so I began Fourth World Promotions in 2017 to bring my ideas for diverse variety events to the stage. I’ve been running El Geebee Tea Queue, my monthly LGBTQ+ variety evening every second Sunday at The Brunswick in Hove for almost a year now and have hosted some incredible acts in comedy, cabaret, live music, spoken word, dance, film and theatre. It always excites me to put together a running order of diverse talents across all the performance art forms and there is just so much LGBTQ+ talent in Brighton and beyond that there are no shortage of performers to choose from!

As a queer artist myself who has been performing in venues across the UK and Europe for many years both as a solo artist and with a full band, it was a really exciting prospect to create a space in my home town for alternative LGBTQ+ performers, both up and coming and well established to come together and celebrate our queerness and diversity through entertainment.

The acts that I’ve chosen for the Queer Town stage I feel represent the exciting and broad ranges of talent the LGBTQ+ Community has to offer in 2019. I’ve worked with them all and they are all bloomin’ marvellous, we really are in for a treat!

Watch this space!
