Nightlife and queer utopias

This event is part of the British Academy's season on Utopia or Dystopia - Imagining Futures

The LGBTQ dancefloor has long been celebrated as a utopian space to express identities and desires. But London’s club scene has undergone a worrying transformation in recent years, with over 50% of venues closing. While the Mayor of London has pledged to safeguard LGBTQ club culture, is enough being done to defend – and revive - the dancefloor? Join our panel as they discuss why nightlife matters and what more needs to be done to reinvent the scene in London and beyond for everyone on the LGBTQ spectrum.

Organised in partnership with the Society for Dance Research and the V&A
