What Can Queer Black History Teach Us?

Historian and activist, Veronica McKenzie learnt how to make films by watching YouTube videos, so the story goes. Now her feature film "Nine Nights" is showing on Amazon Prime.

We know about the laws and riots. But what about the spaces and intimate relationships black and brown communities in Britain carved out to survive?

Veronica McKenzie - Director

Veronica's documentary Under Your Nose (2017), charting the Black Lesbian and Gay Centre's history, was called a 'seminal work' by the BCA. Haringey Vanguard, her National Lottery funded oral history project, captures the UK’s black LGBTQ+ community's lived experiences in the ’70s and 80s. Debut feature Nine Nights (2019) won a PAFF Award and was recently released on Amazon.
