Future's Venture Foundation

Dan Glass

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Sexual Offences, decriminalising abortion and homosexuality in the UK. Still, fifty years on, the struggle against sexist, racist, homophobic and transphobic oppression still continues, with some communities bearing more of the brunt than others. If 2017 thus far has been the year of trumpist islamophobia and homophobia, and if such figures as Milo Stevens have served to whitewash these racist agendas in the name of queer and trans liberation struggles, VoR ’17 is going to turn that all on its head. Bringing together LGBTQI+ artists from muslim-majority countries around the world, to showcase musicians and artists whose work expression is both unapologetically Queer and uncompromisingly anti-racist. Think radical and outrageous revolutionaries who struggles are multi-layered and universal: beautiful voices of global and intersectional resistance.
