Potboiler – Gay Stoke

In GAY STOKE local theatre group Potboiler is embarking on a journey with older LGBTQ+ people from Stoke-on-Trent to discover and re-tell local stories of gay life that have played out in our city. With a particular focus on our city’s gay nightlife and the places and spaces so important when growing up gay, GAY STOKE will challenge and enliven the predominant narratives of our city, broadening up our history and inviting more people in.
