Not so long ago, in a city not so far away, same-sex relations were punishable by death, Oscar Wilde was serving time in Pentonville, and Boy George was singing ‘do you really want to hurt me’ to a status quo that blatantly did. Shunned by institutional homophobia and society at large, queer folk were forced down into the depths of London’s underground, claiming the space as their own, forging a loving community and partying hard as fuck. DJ and co-author of Last Night a DJ Saved my Life, Bill Brewster, knows this and so much more. In tonight’s talk he’ll be focusing on three key figures of London’s gay clubbing scene; Norman Scott, Jeffrey Hinton and Luke Howard. So go, take a seat, and listen up. We’ll be expecting an essay titled ‘From Tallulah and the Warren Street Squat, to #savesoho and Dalston Superstore: the evolution of the queer club scene in London.' Capice? Note: The evening is sold out, but if you're super nice, we bet they'll let you in. All proceeds go to building the Kibera Hamlets School in Nairobi, because they need an education just as much as you do.
