An evening of rarely screened archive film and discussion, celebrating London’s most beloved and iconic LGBTQ+ venues, many long gone.
London’s queer clubs, bars and community centres have offered LGBTQ+ places to meet, have fun and find love and solidarity, but many of these treasured spaces have vanished, as urban redevelopment takes effect.
In this special event, we present a programme of film extracts of rarely screened documentaries, curated by the BFI’s Simon McCallum, featuring amazing footage of venues such as The Gateways Club, The Black Cap and the Royal Vauxhall Tavern.
After the screening, Simon and London’s Night Czar Amy Lamé discuss the films and consider what the future holds for London’s queer spaces.
