Jermin Productions – ‘Swansea Pride Hits the Dancefloor’

True Colours Choir
Performing a selection of modern day songs, True Colours Choir is not your stereotypical, traditional choir! This inclusive group of people singing in harmony, take their music seriously, but not themselves.
Talk: ‘A Queer-Looking Lot of Women’ with Professor Kirsti Bohata
Amy Dillwyn’s first book, The Rebecca Rioter, is a fast-paced historical adventure set in early Victorian Swansea. On the face of it the novel is a retelling of the popular uprising in which men dressed up as women to destroy tollgates. Read in the light of new historical research and Amy Dillwyn’s own diaries, however, we find a radical tale of queer gender identities and same-sex desire.
Glynn Vivian at Night is a free, after hours event which take places once a month. As well as access to all our gallery spaces, enjoy a range of art and craft workshops, ﬁlms, poetry, live music and performance, with food, drinks and a licensed bar available from Glynn Vivian Café.
Each month will see a new line up of artists and performers.
Join us for an after work social or for pre ‘night out’ drinks and discover something new at Glynn Vivian.
