1623 theatre company and Derbyshire LGBT+ need your support to make it possible to run drama and confidence workshops with people in Derbyshire who identify as LGBTQIA*.

In partnership with the charity Derbyshire LGBT+, the workshops explore identity and celebrate diversity by focusing on characters and scenes from Shakespeare's plays, playing parts and working together.

The workshops are part of 1623's project this autumn called LADY M, in which drag artist Shane Lynch creates a new act based on his own life story and the character of Lady Macbeth from Shakespeare's play.

Find out more about LADY M, which is supported by Arts Council England and Derby Theatre, at http://www.bit.ly/1623LadyM

Our aim is to open up the process by which Shane creates his new role by inviting workshop participants to identify, explore and become their own versions of Shakespeare's characters in a safe and friendly environment.

It's all about bringing people together, developing confidence and wellbeing, and celebrating how we all contribute to society while exploring the work of Shakespeare, one of the greatest humanitarians.

We need to raise £500 by the end of September 2017, so that we can pay professional artists to facilitate the workshops in Derbyshire before the end of the season.

Please support if you can and spread the word among your family, friends and colleagues.

Thank you.

* LGBTQIA stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Transsexual, Queer, Intersex/Interested and Asexual/Allies

Hi everyone

First up, thanks so much for your generosity and kindness towards this campaign.

With your support, we're getting closer by the day to reaching the target of £500 so that 1623 theatre company can run workshops with members of Derbyshire LGBT+.

It's all about using drama as a safety framework to explore identity in a safe and welcoming environment, while looking at Shakespeare's characters from LGBT+ viewpoints.

"To thine own self be true"
: Hamlet

Please do spread the word and the link to the campaign with your family, friends and colleagues.

Today we hit £340, which means that there's only £160 to raise before we reach the target of £500.

We have until the end of September. If we receive an average of about £10 a day between now and then, we should get there.

You've made this happen. You're making a difference. You really are and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Much love.

Yours

Ben. x
