At the Belgrade, we strive to ensure that people from all communities are represented in our work.

In celebration of LGBT+ History Month 2021 we’re looking back at some of the important LGBT+ stories we have shared on our stages over the years.

In Autumn 2019, we saw two stories of LGBT+ British South Asians take our stage. In association with Phizzical, we presented Stardust, the Bollywood style reincarnation thriller whose main character Amar was struggling to make his mark as a mainstream popstar. We also co-produced My Beautiful Laundrette alongside Curve, Leicester, Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham and Leeds Playhouse. The story saw old school friends Johnny and Omar reunite and go into business together, renovating an old laundrette.
