Riot Act (Online)

22 August @ 10:00 am - 28 August @ 5:00 pm

£8

A celebration of queer activism across the decades; pulling no punches, hilarious, moving and inspiring… It’s a riot.

Writer and performer Alexis Gregory interviewed three members of the LGBTQ+ rights movement to form this poignant and entertaining show: Michael-Anthony Nozzi, a survivor of the Stonewall riots; Lavinia Co-op, an alternative ‘70s drag artist; and Paul Burston, a ‘90s AIDS activist. Directed by Stonewall (1995) writer Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE, Riot Act brings to life the stories of these three key players in the history of the LGBTQ+ rights movement in a breath-taking and hilarious exploration of six decades of queer history.

This hard-hitting but outrageously funny production was created from Gregory’s interviews with a Stonewall survivor, a radical drag artist, and an AIDS activist. After touring the UK from April, Riot Act is returning to screens this August with screenings of the digital companion piece.
