When banks and sandwich shops have more pride than we do, where can we go to be with our tribe?

It's 2022. There's a rainbow flag in every high-street window, and no lesbian bar. Enter The Ministry of Lesbian Affairs: a lesbian choir on a mission to unite a disparate and dwindling community. Led by a world-weary conductor, the choir flirt, gossip and attempt to sing their way onto the main stage at Pride.

But harmony is more easily dreamt than realised in this heart-warming musical comedy about love, queerness and belonging. Iman Qureshi's play The Ministry of Lesbian Affairs premiered at Soho Theatre, London, in 2022, as a co-production between Soho and Damsel Productions.

'So funny that your stomach aches from laughter... captures the fullness of a life that is rarely seen on stage... Here's hoping it goes far' - WhatsOnStage

'A warm cosy hug of a show, full of life, wit, and pathos that lingers long after its last notes fade' - Time Out
