Explore Brixton's radical black queer history with members of the original Gay Liberation Front, alongside a newer generation of black LGBTQIA+ activists.

Learn about the pioneering movements which sprung from The South London Gay Liberation who were actively engaged in protests and pickets across London such as the South London Squatter movement.

Also the Gay Black Group and the Claimant’s Union who picketed shops that refused to sell the newspaper Gay News, campaigned in solidarity with black, lesbian and women’s groups and catalysed the Anti-Nazi League march for the Rock Against Fascism festival in Brockwell Park.

Learn from London's historic revolutionary activists such as Olive Morris, and delve into movements that have confronted homophobia, racism and sexism through counterculture zines such as Blackout, black queer squatting movements, club nights, healthcare struggles and how this can inform the ongoing struggle for absolute freedom today. See the phenomental ‘Rukus! Archive’ for more in the meantime!
