Core theme: Mental Health

FREE daytime festival 12.30-5pm

We descended on the University of Westminster in full force in 2016, setting news agendas with our mental health debate.

  • Will Young spoke freely about anxiety and his addictions
  • Jaymi from Union J spoke just days after his band mate George Shelly came out about how music industry officials had told them to stay in the closet
  • Adele Roberts called out the commercial radio industry which she said wasn't doing enough to make being open about your sexuality easy in on air roles

#OUTCOME exhibition

The project showcases portraits of LGBT people from a variety of backgrounds showing the 'outcome' of growing up, coming out and living life - their sexuality and gender haven't held them back. Now crowdfunded as a book, if you had your picture taken at our 2016 event, you may well be in it!

Polarised short film

Polarised is an independent documentary about LGBTQ+ mental health in London. Through interviews, dramatization, animation and poetry, the documentary will look at the realities of life under austerity for many young LGBTQ+ people. The film will focus on the stories and the plights of those often suffering in silence on the fringes of the mainstream LGBT community, fighting homophobia, cuts and mental illness
