TheirStories: Michelle Manetti In Conversation

TheirStories: Michelle Manetti In Conversation


Sat 5th 15:45 - 16:45

The House of Sublime

Curated by Laurie Belgrave

TheirStories is an intergenerational LGBTQ+ platform & event series, created to investigate, celebrate and uplift the diverse narratives and stories of the UK’s vibrant LGBTQ+ community, with talks, performances, cultural moments and music. Curated by Laurie Belgrave, founder of The Chateau, and currently resident at The Standard, London, these nourishing conversations between generations of queer creatives, artists & humxns provide a much needed space for learning, reflection and connection, for both the queer community, and allies looking to educate themselves on queer issues. TheirStories values and celebrates our LGBTQ+ history, contextualising our existence with the stories of the queer people who came before us.

At Wilderness 2023, they will present a very special one off edition of their sell out event series, with TheirStories curator Laurie Belgrave in conversation with DJ & Femme Fraiche founder Michelle Manetti. Fresh from the Femme Fraiche House of Sublime takeover on Friday night, Laurie & Michelle will discuss her career in depth, from early years of underage clubbing in the late 90s rave scene, to creating much needed spaces for marginalised queer artists with her groundbreaking club night.
