Stay Home Stay Queer by Melody Sproates & pals (2020)

A new project curated by trans / non-binary theatre maker & facilitator, Melody Sproates. With thanks to iAMi Creative, Updog art, Curious Arts, Sail Creative, The Arts Council England and The Culture Vulture. 

Stay home, stay queer is a free downloadable resource pack full of helpful websites for LGBTQIA+ mental health, pride themed craft activities, interactive elements, queer colouring in and tips on how you can celebrate your identity in small and quiet ways.  It is made for self isolating young (and older) LGBTQIA+ people, who may currently be living in unaccepting homes due to self isolation, who may have had to go back in the closet, unable to fully express themselves or are feeling distant from their identities due to the current climate. 

The resource is designed by iAMi Creative and features LGBTQIA+ positive art from upcoming illustrator Updog art aka Sam Atkinson. It also features written tips, wisdom, activities and isolation experiences from Melody's own personal queer icons; Lee Mattinson, Phil Douglas, Zoë Murtagh, Jan-Willem Van Den Bosch, Ged, Merlin Mee, Ellie Lowther, Sail Creative, Mandy Barker and dandyscopic aka J G Tansley.
