Queer Skills Swap

The Queer Skills Swap is a free series of workshops, classes and performances run by and for the LGBTQ+ community.

We may not be able to come together physically at the moment, but we can all but hope that by adding to the amazing virtual spaces created in the wake of the crisis to unite, share and work collaboratively, more members of the LGBTQIA+ community will be able to connect to one another, all whilst trying something new!
