Southwark LGBT Pride Festival -JUNE 24th to JULY 9th
LGBT Pride is coming! The Parade is in Central London on Saturday July 9th, and will be ENORMOUS. (Seehttp://prideinlondon.org/events/2017/07/08/parade) As part of this, Pride in London is running, and encouraging others to run, community and arts events large and small across London June 24th to July 9th, under the umbrella Pride in London.
Homo Promos Theatre Company and the Ivy House are contributing to this with a Southwark LGBT Pride Festival mainly based at the Ivy House, but with other events taking place elsewhere. It will consist of theatre, cabaret, films, quizzes and other events, some of which are still being planned.
Highlights so far: A London-wide Quiz Contest called the Capital Quiz; the premiere of a classic gay film long thought lost, called ‘David is Homosexual’, made in Lewisham in 1976; pioneering LGBT Rights/Equalities campaigner and 1980spolitician Linda Bellos in conversation; a community play about the last 2 men hanged for sodomy in Britain, performed outside the house where they were arrested; and a very special Special Guest whose very name will recall the days of the 1970sand 80s when the Ivy House was in its glory days as a music venue.
