Doris Allimadi presents

‘Black & Queer’ A Monologue

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Fri 6 Jul, 19:00

Advisory age: 12+ (parental discretion)

Sold out


'Black and Queer' is a monologue, based on a true story, about two young women who fall in love but have to keep it a secret for fear of being ostracized by their families, friends and their community.

The monologue explores attitudes towards homosexuality in the black community and the reaction when a member of their family 'comes out'. 

Although attitudes are changing, being Black and homosexual still has a stigma attached to it within the community. There is a lot of shame, and therefore secrecy, and a sense that one has tainted a whole race.

The monologue is written and performed by Doris Allimadi, author of 'Lost, my battle with depression'. Copies of 'Lost, my battle with depression' will be on sale on the day.
