Following the screening of Alphabet Club join the team behind the film and a special guest panel for an exclusive Q&A/discussion about Alphabet Club and it’s themes, including the controversial subject of faith and sexuality.

A burst of movement; a howl of rage; a piece of poetry; a beautiful aria: Music, dance and spoken word are blended together in Alphabet Club, a short film by director Jamie Fletcher. Alphabet Club is a meditation on sex and identity. What makes us who we are and what are the options that we have to choose from?

The subject of faith and sexuality is rarely open for positive discussions within Christian communities however this appears to be changing. In light of the Church of England’s Pilling Report and a number of respected Christian theologians standing up for marriage equality and equal rights for LGBT people it is incredible to see Churches and Christian Organisations getting involved and even listening and responding to what the LGBT community might have to say. Theatre and film director Jamie Fletcher has been actively engaging with this topic and making shows and films that respond and engage a range of audiences in conversations, discussions and dialogues about LGBT issues. His latest film Alphabet Club is currently being shown at film festivals, arts centres and churches and with a big screening coming up at Hyde Park Picture House on Monday 8th December.

This is an event not to be missed!

This is an opportunity for people of any age and faith to see a heartfelt multi-disciplinary film that fuses contemporary dance, poetic storytelling and drag opera as a way to challenge perceptions of the gay scene, queer stereotypes, gender and identity. Following the screening there will be an exclusive Q&A discussion with the films director and creative team as well as a special guest panel including Christian Theologian Noel Moules.
