THE EXHIBITION ran for two weeks at Brighton’s Jubilee Library and explored the city’s LGBTQ clubbing history and featured club nights and venues including Wild Fruit, Revenge, Traumfrau, Transister, Secrets, FTPA, The Candy Bar as well as the memories of the many who has graced their dancefloors over the past 25 years.

Queen Josephine said: “We are so delighted that the exhibition was such a success, enjoying amazing feedback as viewers made their way down a very glitterball kind of memory lane courtesy of flyers, original artwork and some truly glorious LGBTQ clubbing memories. Together we finally brought the proud disco to the library.”

Fellow curator Kate Wildblood, added: “Thanks to the generous support of the Brighton and Hove clubbing community and local businesses including The T Chest, Weeza Graphics, Audio Brighton, Pete Hayward Design, 4Print and Merlin & Ellis we are able to make a donation to Brighton Pride and The Rainbow Fund. We’d also like to thank all the staff at Jubilee Library as well as Danny Dwyer, Brighton Pride and Thirteen Art’s Hizze Fletcher for their patience and support in helping us bring the city’s disco memories to life once again”.
