Belfast’s annual lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender arts festival starts November 12th, with 8 days of theatre, film, music, art, workshops, performance, discussion and much much more. I have taken a look at the programme of the festival and picked out a few arts events which may be of interest to lesbian art lovers.

ABNORMAL - WORKSHOP with JU GOSLING
SAT. 20th Nov. 11am- 4pm
Arts & Disability Forum
Ground floor, 109-113 Royal Avenue
FREE Admission. Registration essential.
What does it mean to be abnormal? Who decides? Do any of us actually feel abnormal? Celebrate your ab/normality!
Join artist Ju Gosling (aka ju90) to explore these themes further with words and art.
Ju Gosling (ju90) is a 40-somthing queer disabled webmaster and multimedia storyteller. She works mainly with digital lens-based media, but also with performance, text and sound.
Her Abnormal exhibition runs from Oct. 15th-Nov. 25th at Arts & Disability Forum, Belfast, with work developed from an artist’s residency at the National Institute of Medical Research (NIMR), funded by the Wellcome Trust.
