Campbell X is a writer/director who directed the award-winning queer urban romantic comedy feature film STUD LIFE, which was voted by the Guardian as one of the top 10 Black British feature films ever made. It was also in Vogue magazine as one of the best films to watch in 2020. Stud Life was also selected by the British Film Institute as one of the top 8 queer films to view during lockdown.
Campbell was one of the writers at the Royal Court Theatre for My White Best Friend theatre series. He co-directed Talking About A Revolution with Chinonyerem Odimba for Tiata Fahodzi at the Pump House, Lyric Hammersmith and Bristol Old Vic.
Campbell's latest film Still We Thrive about Black joy and resistance, is now screening globally in film festivals. He directed and produced the short film DES!RE about joy and sensuality for men (trans and non-binary) and masculine women ie studs/butches and the documentary VISIBLE about reclaiming QTBIPOC UK history.
Campbell is in post-production on his second feature Low Rider which was filmed in the Western Cape region of South Africa starring Emma Mcdonald and Thishiwe Ziqubu.
Ebun Sodipo makes work for those who will come after: the black trans people of the future. Her interdisciplinary practice narrates her construction of a black trans-feminine self after slavery and colonialism. Through a process of fragmentation, collage, and fabulation, she devises softer, other-wise ways of imagining and speaking about the body, desire, archives, and the past.
Her work has been shown, read, watched, performed at venues such as Bernie Grants Arts Centre, ICA, Tate Britain, Camden Arts Centre, amongst others. She was artist in residence at Porthmeor Studios, and Gasworks. She is currently working on commissions for VISUAL Carlow, FACT Liverpool. She also teaches at Falmouth University.
Jackson King is a writer, journalist and the founding editor of Irresistible Damage – a magazine for queer trans men/mascs. His work ranges from feature/opinion writing on topics such as race, queerness, gender, sex & anti-fatness, to fiction writing and erotic literature.
