Take It From Me: Queer Edition

Take it From Me is back. You know the drill – simply submit your anonymous romantic conundrum in advance, then turn up at the Wheeler Centre on Friday 16 November. Our panel of unqualified strangers will puzzle over your problem before a live audience, then dish out some ill-informed and context-free advice.

This time, our panellists will specialise in queer romantic conundrums. Pour your heart out and our advisers will bring their wealth of experience from mostly irrelevant fields, and nut out some solutions to your dilemma.

Drinks available for purchase on the night.
