It's a celebration of queer talent at the Great Escape...

itoldyouiwouldeatyou are set to host a special showcase for queer culture at this year's Great Escape.

The show takes place at the Richmond in Brighton on May 9th, part of the huge city-wide showcase event.

itoldyouiwouldeatyou will headline, with the hand-picked line up featuring Cable Ties, DITZ, flirting., Lucinda Livingstone (Cultdreams), King Khan, Clumsy Bodies, and Alison Rumfitt.

It's a cracking line up, with fans attending being invited to donate to the charity Mermaids. itoldyouiwouldeatyou explain:

“What matters is that in a world where too many people are attempting to derail discussions about LGBTQIA+ issues with pearl-clutching ‘think of the children’ rhetoric, Mermaids is allowing young trans people to just be kids on the internet. That shouldn’t be so unusual.”

“They are giving the help trans and gender diverse kids need, whether it’s advice to parents as to how to understand and talk about gender diversity or guides for teachers navigating queerness in students. Mermaids has been doing this work since 1995, which is the year I was born.”

“I wish when I was a non-binary teenager I had known, my parents had known, my teachers had known. Mermaids makes the step to opening up a world where that’s possible for the next kid.”

“So come to this show, stick some money in the bucket and let’s all go hard for a good cause.”
