Cecile Communal Presents:
Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants
Live at The Garage, Highbury
Your fave activist-led radical queer dance party is BACK. Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants are teaming up with African Rainbow Family, Micro Rainbow International, The Outside Project, Queefy Cabaret and The People’s Film Club to bring you our biggest party yet on the day of Pride in London. Get ready for Planes and Perverts: Pride and Protest Edition.
Since LGSMigrants began in 2015, we have called out Pride in London for excluding the most marginalised members of our community, the majority of who come from a migrant background. Each year at Pride in London, we march in an attempt to bring the parade back to its political roots, while also targeting corporations who pinkwash our identities while carrying out inhumane practices such as forced deportations. This year we hosting a party which will create a space for politically minded queers and members of our community from marginalised backgrounds to party with meaning. The event will also raise much-needed cash for migrant-led queer groups to get them to down to London for Pride in London and Black Pride.
Expect: Join us from 8pm at The Garage in Highbury & Islington for workshops, stalls, film screenings, live music, spoken word, drag performances, DJs and so much more. This party will be safe, political and meaningful space to celebrate the diversity in our community and what pride really means to us – freedom, equality, and justice.
Dresscode: Whatever the fuck you like.
Ticket info: Unwaged £5 | Standard £12.50 | Solidarity £18. We know that there is a hell of a lot of shit out there at the minute, with that in mind, a proportion of our tickets will be available for £5 for those of you on low incomes. The £5 tickets will be first come first served and based purely based on honesty. If you can afford the full price tickets, please leave the £5 tickets for those who cannot.
Accessibiity: The Garage space is over two floors. The main floor is fully accessible with a gender-neutral accessible toilet. All toilets on the night will be gender neutral. There will be seating in the main room, there will also be a sober space in this main room, which will be towards the stage so none of the shows are missed. We will also have a quiet space with seating. Unfortunately, the quiet space is up a flight of stairs. However, the venue, staff, and members of LGSMigrants will be able to help you up the stairs. Just notify us on entry or drop us an email before.
