Queer the Pier

A community curated exhibition on local LGBTIQA+ history. Opening Saturday 22nd February 2020 at Brighton Museums. Celebrating the lives of local writers, artists, performers, activists and ordinary people whose stories are brought to life with film and photography, fashion and drag and oral histories.

Featuring two archive film programmes from us combining archive film from the 1960s to the 1990s and oral history interviews with local people made in 2003.  The interviewees share memories and reveal specific moments that marked changes in their lives revealing how life has changed for the LGBTIQ+ community and people in Brighton over the years.

Exhibition organised with invaluable support from the dedicated volunteers working on the exhibition.  In particular we thank Lucie Rachel who devoted many hours to researching and editing the film programmes.

Exhibition initiated and organised by Queer in Brighton and Queer Heritage South.
