Queer Spirit aims to be open to as many people as possible. We offer free places in exchange for doing some work at the festival, but we also understand that not everyone is able to work. To that end we have a bursary fund that provides tickets to those who are would be unable to get a ticket.
This is funded by generous donations from loving souls who wish to see the healing magic of Queer Spirit shared with as many people as possible!

African Wisdom Teacher Malidoma Some of the Dagara Tribe brought his tribal understanding of gender and sexuality to the West in the 1990s. He, and his wife Sobonfu Some, both taught that it was accepted in their culture that a person's inner gender may be different to their physical sex, and that the sexuality of same sex orientated individuals was regarded a spiritual energy that was used for the greater good of the community. Gay sex was seen as a way to open gates to other dimensions, to worlds of nature spirits, ancestors, angels and deities.

The parliament of Uganda has voted for laws imposing lengthy prison sentences for people who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or queer or who are found to have promoted homosexuality. It establishes the death penalty for homosexual acts with under-18s, people with disabilities and several other groups, plus sets out punishment for failing to report suspected gay relationships – so criminalising the families and friends of LGBTQ+ people.

Trans people are constantly in the news, and getting similar, hostile, treatment to that given out to gay men in past decades: currently we are seeing anti-trans bills in American legislatures, protests at Drag Queen Story Time events in the UK, and anti-trans rhetoric flowing freely.
