Angelo Quattrocchi’s The Pope is Not Gay! will launch on the 14th September at the Southbank Centre, from 6:30-9:00pm at September’s Polari, London’s “peerless gay literary salon”. Host Paul Burston presents readings from the book, musicians and performers protesting the Pope, including:
- David Hoyle: An artist working across stage, television and film, David Hoyle “embraces controversy as easily as he embraces the avant garde.”
- Ste McCabe: One-man-band who “blends punk rock riffs, pop melodies and retro beats with sarcastic, radical, queer, feminist lyrics.”
- Chloe Poems Music: Billed as “Britain’s first gay socialist transvestite poet”, Chloe Poems Music promises to bring “playful lyrics” and “a rock and roll ethos” to the evening’s proceedings.
