IMAGE THE GATEWAYS CLUB / CIRCA 1953
Queer Britain and DIVA magazine invite you to join us for an online event taking place 7-8pm on 27 April about the legendary women's club, The Gateways. From the 1930s to the ‘80s, The Gateways was one of the most important cultural hotspots for lesbians and bisexual women, attracting a heady mix of clientele including artist Maggi Hambling, singer Dusty Springfield and film star Diana Dors. It also featured in the iconic 1968 film, The Killing of Sister George. Chaired by House of Pride co-founder Alex D'Sa and featuring Gate's regulars Trudy Howson and Linda Riley, together with Lucie Warrington and Jacquie Lawrence, producer and director of a forthcoming film about the club.
Queer people have impacted every part of culture, yet all too often their lives have been written in the margins of history books. Valuable stories and artefacts are being lost. Once gone, they may never be recovered. These deserve a dedicated space to be preserved, explored and celebrated. Queer Britain will put this centre stage. Join us and let's make history!
A charity working to establish the UK’s first national LGBTQ+ museum, a place as exciting as the people, stories and ideas it explores and celebrates. It will be an essential place for all regardless of sexuality or gender identity, to find out about the culture they have been born into, have chosen or seek to understand. It will help complete the Nation’s family tree.
