• Summer of Love: Exploring London's LGBT Clubbing Scene

    422K views 1 month ago
    For the first episode of our four part Summer of Love series, we set out to explore the importance of queer spaces in London that keep the city so alive. Out to prove that love and unity conquers all, we follow a group of friends who met in the city’s gay club scene, to discover how queer clubbing has brought them together. Safe places where people go to be who they want to be are integral to the fabric of London’s nightlife, but have sadly been in decline after the rapid loss of some London’s most loved queer spaces such as The Black Cap, The Joiners Arms and The George and Dragon. Despite this, the LGBTQ+ community is standing strong and partying hard, making the fight for pride and visibility more important than ever.
