A night celebrating the drag stories and legacy of the GAY LIBERATION FRONT with Stuart Feather (once arrested in full Mary Whitehouse drag in 1971) and Living Legend LAVINIA CO-OP of radical drag theatre troupe BLOOLIPS.

The GLF harnessed the power and politics of drag in their actions and campaigns, most notoriously against Mary Whitehouse’s Festival of Light (feat. Cliff Richard) in 1971. After the heyday of the GLF, activist and performer Bette Bourne formed the radical drag theatre troupe BLOOLIPS, featuring, among others Lavinia Co-op and Gretal Feather, who toured Britain, Europe and America.

An evening to explore the potential drag has to bring about social change and make people sit up and notice, based on the stories of the GLF and Bloolips.
