Queer Contact 2021: Russell T Davies in conversation with Nathaniel Hall, online, 30 April 2021, from £5.00 - Book now

In this first event announced for Queer Contact 2021, screenwriting legend Russell T Davies will join in conversation with award-winning theatre-maker Nathaniel Hall to discuss depictions of HIV and AIDS on stage and screen.

Screenwriting legend Russell T Davies will join in conversation with award-winning theatre-maker Nathaniel Hall.

The evening will also include the premiere of a collection of short films, created by Dibby Theatre, about living with HIV today. The films have been made as part of the ‘In Equal Parts’ initiative – a community-led creative outreach project aiming to tackle the stigma and shame associated with HIV.

Russell T Davies is the writer of Channel 4 drama It’s a Sin, which premiered in January 2021 and is currently available to stream on All4. The series is something of a companion piece, more than two decades on, from his groundbreaking 1999 drama Queer as Folk.

Theatre-maker and activist Nathaniel Hall’s show First Time, exploring the stigma and shame associated with HIV, presents an autobiographical and inspiring account of his HIV diagnosis at the age of 17. Hall also stars in the third episode of Davies’ It’s a Sin, which centres around the Aids crisis in the 80s and early 90s, and has been described as a ‘poignant masterpiece’ by The Guardian.

The evening will also include the premiere of a collection of short films, created by Dibby Theatre, about living with HIV today.

The event is happening as part of the annual festival Queer Contact which takes place every February. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the festival is currently being rescheduled and all events will now take place in April. We’re waiting for confirmation on the events, times and dates – we’ll bring this information as soon as we have it – do check back soon.

Queer Contact 2021: Russell T Davies in conversation with Nathaniel Hall is a ticketed event taking place on Zoom.
