The Coming Back Out Ball

The Coming Back Out Ball starts with a series of social events for older Lesbian, Gay, non-binary, Trans and Intersex individuals and groups to take part in, offering a chance to meet new people and celebrate community.

These social events will run throughout 2019 from May, in locations to be announced.

Full details of the final social spectacular, the actual Coming Back Out Ball, will be announced next year. It promises to be a night of cultural significance in which the broader community can sit alongside LGBTI elders to eat, drink, dance, reminisce and dream together into the future.

The Coming Back Out Ball has been successfully pioneered in Australia by arts company All The Queens Men. Lewis Hetherington will collaborate with All The Queens Men on the project in Scotland This is the first time that this radical community project has been delivered outside of Australia.
