Being LGBTQ Launch Party

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 1st Feb 2018

Celebrate the launch of The Calvert Journal’s major new project with a night of queer culture and performance at The Queen Adelaide. 
Being LGBTQ  is a special report exploring and celebrating LGBTQ culture, politics and life in the New East that will be released throughout Spring 2018.
Join us for an exciting evening featuring screenings of music videos from Russia's gay 90s, a reading of queer feminist sci-fi short stories from Central Asia, and a performance by Poland's most famous drag queen, Kim Lee. The full programme and schedule will be announced soon. 
Presented in collaboration with The Queen Adelaide and The LipSinkers. 
About Kim Lee
Kim Lee, referred to by the press as "the most popular Polish drag queen", has been performing since 2002 and is known for her huge repertoire, handmade costumes and attention to detail. She collaborates with numerous LGBTQ equality organizations, engages in social campaigns, opens film festivals, participates in scientific conferences, publishes film and book reviews in LGBTQ magazines, and runs a YouTube channel considered to be one of the most important vlogs in Poland’s LGBTQ environment. Since 2009 she has organized the Drag Queen Kim Lee Festival, Poland's largest drag queen review.
About Being LGBTQ
The need to listen to the stories of LGBTQ people in the New East has perhaps never been greater, as recent repressions from Chechnya to Poland make clear. But from art to photography, literature to nightlife, the community is fighting back. The Calvert Journal's major new series explores and celebrates LGBTQ life in culture, politics and beyond.

A new season of Urban Forest Explorations. We are delighted to welcome back Paul Wood, author of 'London Street Trees' (Guardian Nature Books  of 2017) to entice you to Explore the Urban Forest in Hackney. Hackney has become known as an ‘Urban Arboretum’ and with good reason: this east end borough is home to perhaps the most diverse selection of street trees in London. Over 300 species and cultivars can be found, and on this walk around a small part of the borough we will encounter at least 10%.

Stalking East End Mulberries: Stepney - Victoria Park. Spitalfields and Bethnal Green have long associations with Huguenot silk weavers who settled here in he late 17th century. Although these weavers did not produce their own silk, black mulberry trees are still dotted around the area, from front gardens in Mile End to the former Bishop Bonner’s Palace and Victoria Park.
