To kick off the first Sofa Club of 2021, we’ve chosen the brand new Channel 4 drama “It’s A Sin”

Created by Queer as Folk, Cucumber, Years and Years creator and former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies, and will explore the lives of three young gay men affected by the AIDS crisis of the 1980s.

We will be joined by Aled from Brigstowe and Natasha from THT who will be giving us an introduction to ‘It’s a Sin’, looking at Russell T. Davis’ past work and the changing attitudes/ experiences of living with HIV/AIDS in the 1980s and now. They will be around after to join Rebecca Ballard (Queer Vision Producer and Programmer) and Queer Vision team to discuss responses to the first episode and signpost to support available.

Pre-show discussion: 8.30pm

Show (Channel 4 broadcast): 9pm

Post-show discussion: 10pm

End: 10.30pm

Sofa Club tickets are available on a pay-what-you-feel (PWYF) basis, this means that there is no set price for a ticket, making sure that it’s as accessible to as many people as possible. If you wish to attend for free, leave the payment field as 0 on the ticket booking page. 

We encourage those who are able to afford it to buy one, this will allow us to continue to run the club on a PWYF basis.
