POP UP EXHIBITION
Platform Southwark Running from 16/07/19- 26/07/19
"Frocks, films, and photographs reveal the radical-camp campaigners who developed the Bloolips theatre troupe out of the Gay Liberation Front under the direction of Bette Bourne and toured America and Europe with a message of laughter and liberation, becoming the toast of off-Broadway. Members of Bloolips will often be in attendance to chat with visitors at this exhibition organised by Queerseum and Queer Tours of London."

WHAT DOES A QUEER MUSEUM LOOK LIKE?

QUEERSEUM was invited to take part in Queer & Now Festival at Tate Britain.
Where and how do we shape the queer past in the future?
What should a queer museum contain? Whose stories should it tell? Should it replicate museums as we know them, or invent a new queer model?
