‘I want to live – and I want to taste what freedom means when you are gay’ – Medhi, Syrian refugee

As part of MIF’s Festival in My House series, Alex, Tim and Lizzie invite you to their Failsworth home for a unique artwork highlighting the LGBT international refugee and homeless epidemic.

In a darkened room, you’ll hear the voices of LGBT refugees and homeless talking about their lives – their childhoods, the persecution they’ve faced, their hopes for the future – interwoven with field recordings and new ambient music. In a world of bias and misinformation, these refugees will tell you their truths.

Please make us aware of any access, food allergies or dietary requirements at the time of booking. If you have any queries, please get in touch by email (fimh@mif.co.uk) or phone the Community Producer on 07811 448648.
