LGBTI Meeting Friday 21 January - Queering Francis - a performance

 


Francis of Assisi is one of the most popular saints ever...but did you ever think of him as queer? 


Queering Francis is a short performance by MCAST students 

that shows us that  ‘the gender-bending St. Francis has 

 already spoken through the ages to the LGBT community’ 

(Kevin Elphick) but still has a lot to tell us! 


Come and engage in the dialogue!
