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.

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.
