This is an open social space by, for, and centring the work of self-identified queer, lesbian, bi and trans women, trans men, non-binary and intersex people. Taking up space is political!

Cis men: sorry this one's not for you!

The Film: Caramel - "Caramel might be Lebanon's answer to Steel Magnolias, but with less schmaltz and a far better script. Nadine Labaki directed and stars in the film — her first as an actress — which centers around the lives and romances of five women working in a Beirut beauty salon. The premise may evoke images of Queen Latifah tossing off one-liners with a blow-dryer in hand, but Caramel throws a few curveballs into the chick-flick mix: One woman falls for a female client, another has an affair with a married man, and a third finds love in the last stages of her life."

Queerspace FC is a collective of, and for, queer, lesbian, bi and trans women, transmen and non-binary and intersex people, promoting an affirming space where we can regularly play football, socialise and organise inclusive events. Queerspace FC (film club) is the social arm of Queerspace FC (football club) but you don’t have to be into football to join our fortnightly film screening! We aim to take turns curating and hosting evenings and you’re welcome to propose a movie, invite a guest speaker, etc. Our choice of films does not necessarily mean endorsement, discussion and dissent is welcomed!
