There has been a deeply disturbing shift in the social and political climate around the globe, including in the UK, where populists (for the most part) are ruthlessly exploiting divisions in society for their own ends. Whether it is in demonising foreign migrants, refugees, the LGBT+ community, women, black people or indeed any other minority, hatred and fear are being turned into political capital.

Others will do other things to fight this alarming turn of events, but Dancing to Change the World! is QTL’s response. If we are threatened with persecution, so are others.
In Dancing to Change the World we will be using queer tango to reach out to other communities, to reinforce the message that they are not alone, and that with goodwill, we can work together to push back. We need not be strangers to one another.
We hope you can join and support us for a series of collaborative events to show that together we can change the world.
More details to follow.
