Weʼre raising £2,000 to help fund our Summer Program! Workshops, Exhibitions and Events! Raising awareness of the lives lost during our fight for equality.

Hate crime against the LGBT community has risen by 76% in the UK since 2013 and around one in five LGBT+ individuals have experienced a hate crime or incident in the last 12 months, based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.
The Ministry of Fabulous Abominations was formed to raise awareness of this issue and to stand up to prejudice and hate crime against the LGBT community using art, activism, a little faith and a lot of glitter. We aim to encourage young people, many of whom have personal experience of hate crime and prejudice, to find their creative voice and explore how art can be a positive tool for change. We also provide a platform for emerging and established artists working in this field.
We are raising money to help pay for our Summer Program. MOFA’s Summer Program is a series of fourteen artist led workshops running each Saturday from July 28th until October 27th.
The Program will conclude with an Exhibition at our Memorial Event that will take place in Liverpool on the first weekend in November. The dates coincide with Mexico’s Day of the Dead and we will draw inspiration from the vibrant festive aesthetic associated with this celebration.
The Memorial Event and Exhibition will be a colourful tribute to all the lives lost to homophobic and trans-phobic hate crime worldwide as well as a celebration of the resilience and creativity that have long been the survival tools of the LGBTQ+ community.
This Event will include visual art, performance, film screenings and speakers from a variety of LGBT organisations.
