The London Queer Social Centre Opening Day


We found another beautiful, empty and lonely-looking building. Ze told us to bring all our queer friends and come party with hir forever. We said we’d do 2 weeks, and ze said fine I guess that’ll do.

We’ll tell you where ze is nearer the time obvs.

We’re running from June 22nd to July 6th as an alternative to Pride London, an event that has become increasingly alienating and depoliticised as it has become larger, feeding on funds from ugly banks and corporations.

We run everything for free, spend as little money as possible and make things back from donations.

There’s going to be a full schedule of events coming up over the next couple of weeks, including more instalments of the intersectionality series, queer cinema, street parties, queering anarchism, queers in squatting, Bash Back! street patrols, poetry and a queer literary salon. More things to be confirmed and full programme coming soon.

Poetry workshop

What is “Queer” anyway?

An open discussion on our personal relationships with the word queer and the significance of having a queer space. What makes a queer space? Why is it important? What is a queer social centre for?

This will be an open and accessible conversation inclusive of all people regardless of educational background.

Baking and Entering

We’ll be cooking a big pot of something delicious for everyone to eat and baking some home-made cakes, as well as setting out ones we’ve skipped. Try to bring something of your own to share as well and we’ll sort them into “Vegetarian”, “Vegan” and “Freegan” piles. There’ll be music and a bar to enjoy as well.
