Queer Tours of London presents
Unfinished Business - LGBT+ Voices of the Revolution X
Sunday 22 April
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
In a nutshell
A performance and spoken word platform for LGBTQIA+ freedom world-wide
In association with ‘In Place of War’, ‘African Rainbow Family’ and a range of global LGBTQI+ grassroots movements and diaspora LGBTQI+ activist movements who have fled homophobic persecution to the UK, Unfinished Business - LGBTQI+ Voices of the Revolution is a musical showcase that brings together an inspirational line up of LGBTQI+ musicians from countries where it is illegal to be LGBTQI+ to collaborate, create and perform with each other. Bringing together LGBTQI+ artists from countries around the world where it is illegal to be queer we will showcase musicians and artists whose work expression is both unapologetically Queer and uncompromisingly anti-racist. Think radical and outrageous revolutionaries who struggles are multi-layered and universal: beautiful voices of global and intersectional resistance.
Unfinished Business - LGBTQI+ Voices of the Revolution exists to celebrate previous generations of queer activists and cultivate the next generation of artists, activists and changemakers dedicated to ending homophobia, transphobia and all forms of oppression. Events across London have already begun to generate attention. ‘LGBTQI+ Voices of the Revolution’ will be the public cultural platform that will raise awareness outside the conference walls agitating for a global movement of creative activism to decriminalise homosexuality everywhere and provide true freedom for all.
What to Expect
Performances from leading LGBTQI+ artists showcasing dance, spoken word, electric and acapella songs and much more.

What People Are Saying
'Human Rights is not a privilege, Commonwealth citizens who are LGBT have the right to freely express who they are without fear of persecution and or prosecution, it is important for these rights to be legally protected and understood.' Reverend Jide Macaulay - Founder @HouseOfRainbow
'The laws in Commonwealth states speak in languages inscribed on LGBT+ bodies as bleeding scars. The time has come for states to see these scars and for the cause of the Commonwealth to take responsibility for enabling the recovery process.' - Kat Kai Kol-Kes, ARTivist (Botswana)
Why does Rich Mix matter?
'Rich Mix is a hugely inspirational cultural centre at the heart of London’s political and social battleground which provides precious space to bring the needs of our community to life.'
