This is a call 2 arms 4 ALL Queer* folks in the City of Hull.
The time has come when we need 2 take it to the streets, 2 the very steps of the guildhall and 2 the lawns of vicky park.
2geva as a clan/crew we will learn boxing in 1 of Hull’s legendary boxing gyms.
Learning the skills needed 2 fully unleash our inner QUEER POWER to the ppl of the city, 2 our friends + family + more importantly 2 our oppressors .
After a series of sessions designed 2 invoke our physical strength and we will then demonstrate our POWER in a choreographed physical demonstration during the Hull Pride Parade on the 21st July.
Queer alt music anthems will blare out whilst we re-claim the city wiv our bodies, making it QUEER, making it ours. Joining the legendary names of Hull’s boxing Pantheon.
REAL TALK: This project isn’t designed 2 turn ‘weak’ queers into boxers or braying ur mates. It’s about invoking our special hardcore queer strength + reconnecting 2 our QUEER bodies thru safe boxing.
