We warmly invite those who planned, supported, attended or worked at the London Lesbian and Gay Centre, to participate in a public, documented conversation about its history and the lessons that can be learned for present-day campaigns to create LGBTQ+ community spaces.

Hosted by UCL Urban Laboratory and supported by the Museum of London, the event will take the form of a public conversation, with the purpose of contributing to the documentation of this community space. Participants are encouraged to bring their memories and memorabilia. Afternoon tea will be provided.

If you would like to attend, RSVP by email, stating your link to the London Lesbian and Gay Centre, to: joseph.alloway.12@ucl.ac.uk. Please also pass on this invitation to anyone you know who has experienced the Centre firsthand.

This event forms part of UCL Urban Laboratory's ongoing research onLGBTQ+ spaces in the capital, and forms part of research being undertaken by Dr Ben Campkin.

The event will be followed by a public launch of Urban Pamphleteer #7, a special issue on LGBTQ+ Nightlife in London: Past, Present and Future. All are welcome, places limited. RSVP https://urbanpamphleteer7.eventbrite.co.uk
