Homotopia poster

Homotopia is a social justice organisation based in Liverpool. They organise a festival of queer art, celebrated every November. The first Homotopia was commissioned by the Liverpool Culture Company and was piloted from 1-11 November 2004 as part of Liverpool’s successful bid to become European Capital of Culture. It featured 16 events in five venues across the ten days, enjoyed by over 2,500 people. Since 2009, the festival has operated internationally with organisations and venues across Europe.

Homotopia has worked closely with National Museums Liverpool since 2010 when performance artist David Hoyle hosted a tour of the Walker Art Gallery, called ‘Queering the Portrait’. In 2011, the Museum of Liverpool and Walker Art Gallery hosted Savage Style: costumes from Lily’s wardrobe. Later Homotopia and National Museums Liverpool collaborations have included David Hockney: Early Reflections, Transformation and Pug Virus at the Walker Art Gallery and April Ashley: Portrait of a Lady at the Museum of Liverpool.

Homotopia continues to attract audiences in their tens of thousands and is the leading LGBT arts festival in the UK.
