Topher Campbell to talk at next LGBTQ+ History Club

Besi Besemar January 16, 2019

The first LGBTQ+ History Club of 2019 will feature Topher Campbell.

Dr TOPHER Campbell, theatre and filmmaker and writer, is co-founder of London’s rukus! Archive.

The rukus! Archive was established by Topher Campbell and Ajamu X in 2005. It is Europe’s first archive dedicated to the histories, culture and experiences of Black LGBTQ people in the UK.

The rukus! Archive received a Landmark Archive Award in 2008 from the London Metropolitan Archives where it is now housed.

In his talk Topher will introduce the archive through his personal experience as Black Queer man detailing what inspired and moved him to make the archive. He will also talk about how important it is that the archive remains a living and organic testament to the people who contribute.
