Telling Tales: I'm Every Woman - International Women's Day Special

  • The Bagelry Nelson Street Liverpool (map)

Our LGBTQ+ storytelling event Telling Tales is back and this time the theme is I’M EVERY WOMAN.

To celebrate International Women’s Day we invite you to a special storytelling event where local people will share their experiences of women and womanhood* from an LGBTQ+ perspective.

Held on the eve of International Women's Day, join us on Thursday 7 March at The Bagelry, Liverpool.

At this intimate event you will hear empowering stories, specially selected by Liverpool Queer Collective, which celebrate womanhood and the women who have enriched our lives.

We live in a world where many women are still oppressed and where equality still needs to be fought for. By sharing our stories we can show solidarity and help each other to learn from our experiences.

This is conversational storytelling, the people speaking are ‘real people’ telling ‘real’ stories about their lives. Please note that we have gathered the stories in advance and unless you have been informed, you won't be expected to speak at the event!

As well as the stories, there'll be live musical entertainment from The Ukeleighties.

Yummy food plus hot and cold drinks can be bought from The Bagelry, so come down early to fuel up before the start.

Ticketing is pay what you decide as we always aim to be open and inclusive. Liverpool Queer Collective receives no funding to run this event and is 100% volunteer led, so when you pay to attend our events you are supporting the continuity of our work. Many thanks for your support.

Keep the stories flowing all night. After Telling Tales we'll head to Beers For Queers at District for more chatting and possibly dancing!
