Event description

Description

Join UCL Urban Laboratory and the Museum of London for the public launch of Urban Pamphleteer #7: LGBTQ+ night-time spaces, past, present and future.

Urban Pamphleteer is a series of publications that confront key contemporary urban questions from diverse perspectives. Written in a direct and accessible tone, these pamphlets draw on the history of radical pamphleteering as a tool for instigating change.

This issue gathers perspectives, provocations and vignettes on London’s LGBTQ+ night-time spaces, past, present and future, with a focus on the different tactics being used to queer night-space. Featuring a diversity of examples that together suggest how and why different venues, events and clusters are produced; how, when and why they have opened or closed; the scenes that have recently emerged, or are imagined, and how these connect with historical ones, and with other places.

Edited by Ben Campkin, Laura Marshall, Rebecca Ross. Designed by Guglielmo Rossi.

Contributors include: Stuart Feather; DJ Ritu; Anton Johnson; Ben Walters; Chardine Taylor-Stone; Joe Parslow; Victoria Sin; Travis Alabanza; R. Justin Hunt; Josh Hepple; Planning Out; Friends of the Joiners Arms; Queer Spaces Network; Prem Sahib.

Urban Pamphleteer #7 has been produced in partnership with Museum of London for City Now City Future, a season of ideas, debate and inspiration.
