Fighting for Space, love and loss.
Feb 28th Hackney Museum host Resilient and Resisting, in LGBT history month.
Live readings. D.I.Y Archive. Free zine.
6 – 7.45pm
Historically LGBTIQ people have fought for space because we had to, bringing the rights and places we needed into existence. How have we created, fought for and made space for our communities? What have we lost? As we often come to big cities as a place of safety, to find community, how are LGBTIQ people affected by or part of gentrification?
Come and celebrate Queer Action past and present by taking up space in the Hackney Museum. What isn’t allowed to be on display? What objects would you contribute and caption to tell a tale of Hackney Queerness? Bring something along, and let’s do it for a night.
Hear readings from the Resilient and Resisting project, on our complex community and how we fight for space: Tales of sex-working queers, squatter queers, kinky queers, queers who are so tired of racism in the scene, Crip queers, Transfabulous queers, pole dancing queers, and DJing queers, all celebrating what we’ve loved and what we’ve lost, what we’re still fighting for.
This event runs from 6pm to 7.45pm. Readings at 6.30pm sharp. Snacks, soft drinks and music either side.
