That's right, folks Homotopia Festival is back from 3 November - 2 December 2018, but don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to stock up on glitter and prepare your glad rags for a month of very gay festivities...

Here at DIVA, we love and cherish women. In a feminist-y way, but also in a gay-y way. So, it’s fair to say that we’re all pretty excited for this year's Homotopia.
Threesome is on display at The Gallery from Sunday 4 November – 2 December and features the work of lesbian painters and DIVA faves Sadie Lee, Roxana Halls and Sarah Jane Moon. (Lesbian art? We’ll definitely be making an appearance).
If art exhibitions aren’t your thing, then there’s also an array of panel talks celebrating everything queer.
Cheryl Martin, Guest Curator for 2018, will be leading the LGBT+ Women In Writing panel on Tuesday 20 November. Joined by Juno Dawson and Kerry Hudson, the panel will discuss the ins and outs of being a female writer and offer up tips and tricks for establishing and maintaining a successful career. Count us in.
