Cambridge Edition February 2019


CAMBR IDGE QUEER VALENT INE’ S See comedians, slam poets, dancers, DJs and more this Valentine’s Day, at an evening celebrating queer love at Cambridge Junction. The event is organised by the Kite Trust, Cambridgeshire’s leading organisation working with LGBT+ young people, and features a line-up of talent that includes critically acclaimed comic Jen Brister, who you might know from Live at the Apollo and who Time Out described as “gorgeously talented”. She’s joined by multi-award- winning UK National Poetry Slam Champion, Toby Campion – “the voice of a generation” according to Sunday Politics . Singer-songwriter Grace Petrie (pictured above) will charm with her music and there’ll also be a chance to learn to dance with London’s Queer Tango. Lara Jaffey, executive director of the Kite Trust, says: “Valentine’s is a day to celebrate love and, for us as a charity, this is crucial, as we work to ensure that all young people, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, can live in a world free from discrimination and judgement about who they are attracted to.” She adds: “We’re thrilled to be bringing together a message of love and acceptance with our major annual fundraiser. With ever-shifting political and financial climates, having a local support base enables us to continue to provide crucial services to LGBT+ young people. This event will be a great way to show your commitment and have a fantastic evening out.” £20 for a table seat or £13 for a balcony seat.
