There are indeed special events for gay Jews in Manchester!

Queer, Jewish cabaret collective Homos and Houmous welcomes all northern hebrews, shebrews and theybrews, goys and gals (all welcome). Closet nothing. Covet everything.

We’re coming to Manchester for our tenth instalment, as part of our UK TOUR and we couldn’t be happier!

To start the show with a bang, North London’s most unapologetically Jewish family, The Rimmers will be screening their new short film, ‘Personal Shopping’.


£10 well-waged / £7 waged / £4 unwaged


No one turned away for lack of funds. Please opt for a “well-waged” ticket if you can to help subsidise and maintain fair access to arts programming.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or if you’re interested in performing/ our open mic slots at [email protected]


Expect more theatre, more schmatz and even more houmous. Your nan will love us!!

Plus, join us on the 17th May for an open artists forum to explore the position of faith in art and performance. More details to come.

Since 2016 we’ve been schlepping around London with a smorgasbord of drag, comedy, live klezmer, poetry and politics. Hosted by music hall grand dame Chanukah Lewinsky (think Julie Walters on speed), the night began as an open mic at Housmans Bookshop for LGBTI+ Jews to celebrate these two identities which can so often feel at odds. Judaism has a long-standing tradition of camp and queerness and Homos and Houmous is always a raucous family affair; where Bette Midler’s musical stand-up in the bathhouses of New York meets arguments over Shabbat dinner.
