PREVIEW: Brighton Resists: snapshots of LGBTQ+ activism in our city

Besi Besemar March 13, 2017

Join Queer in Brighton for an evening of LGBT+ history, food, and art. A chance to peer into archival material and learn about some of the pivotal moments of political activism of our community.

For the past six months Brighton LGBT+ History Club has been exploring the rich and diverse LGBT+ history of the city – from early Pride marches to the experience of deaf queer people, via the stories of dandies, fashion, and the lives of older lesbians – they have barely scratched the surface.

Brighton Resists uses the Section 28 campaign as a starting point to look at the history of LGBT+ activism in the city. Using collections at The Keep (University of Sussex) and from the Queer in Brighton project this exhibition gives snapshots of when our communities have come together to resist oppressive legislation, harassment and invisibility.
