My Queer Culture – Preview

Adam Lowe

What is ‘queer’ culture? Angel of Youths is presenting a new show – this time at Leeds Art Gallery – on Saturday 23 August.

Diversity in practice is on offer – focusing on the experience of African communities in Leeds and asking the qesution: How are young people living with sexuality?

My Queer Culture is a preview event for the major exhibition My Leeds My Culture opening in October 2014 at Leeds Art Gallery, featuring life as we feel it now. It will showcase contributions from young adults (16-30), activists and organisation from across the North of England.

The event is open to all and entry is free. Things will kick off at 10am and finish at 4pm – refreshments will be available from the Art Gallery cafe and you are free to attend at any time throughout as there is a rolling programme.

There will be poetry, music, discussion, an interactive art installation and the launch of the Queer Eye by the Gallery.


My Queer Culture is support by Leeds City Council, Leeds Museums and Galleries, BHI, and Leeds No Border.

My Queer Culture is produced by Angel of Youths, a grassroots organisation that exists to showcase the talent of young people in Leeds, and to bring them closer to everyone’s attention – including statutory providers of services to all from 16 years to 30.
