Wow! Funding received for Youth Writing Project!

Youth Outreach Programme

It is with great pleasure, that Gay Abandon can reveal, that a sizeable chunk of money has been received from Leeds Inspired!

This money from Leeds City Council will allow us to attain one of our long-term goals of reaching out to and embracing young LGBT life in Leeds and its environs.

We are now seeking recruits for our series of four workshops, which will be held with James Nash, a poet from Leeds.

Recruits (aged exclusively from 18 to 25) will take part in four evening sessions from 21st October to 11th November 2014, at 7:30pm.

Attendees will be guided to seek out their idol or icon, and write Spoken Word about said person.

There will then be the opportunity to record the content, or perform it at Gay Abandon’s concert on 15th November 2014.

Each student’s work will be printed, and produced for sale in a small anthology, at Gay Abandon’s concert.  It will also be available for viewing on a dedicated website.
