My name is Heather Rose and I am a second-year Events Management student at Queen Margaret University. With a background in musical and physical theatre, creative writing, and busking for charities, there have been few opportunities that encouraged my Queer identity to transpire. The experiences that have, have completely transformed my life and had an indisputable influence on the development of Queerativity.

Chelsea Grace’s monologue “Who Doesn’t Love Turtles?” is a personal piece that depicts the confusing, yet equally electric steps taken to understand your sexuality, and the effects your surrounding environment have on this.
Hannah McGregor’s original song “She”, is a beautiful piece that blends self-image and insecurities, from a WLW perspective. Songs and art like this are extremely important in our culture. They help younger people feel less alienated by their attractions and feelings, and generally provide more content that LGBTQ+ folks can relate to.
