About the event

We are joining forces with the brilliant Queer Cumbria CIC to welcome @linden_archives to Hawkshead! Stuart will talk us through some of his iconic archive images of northern queer culture from the eighties & nineties! Think wigs, disco balls, pecs and pints! Plus there’ll be drinks and tunes and good vibes all round! Ticket proceeds will go toward supporting the work of Queer Cumbria, providing visibility and voice for queer people across the county.

Stuart Linden Rhodes established the instagram account Linden Archives during the lockdowns of 2020-21, scanning and digitising hundreds of photographs—primarily as a way to preserve his reportage photography for All Points North and Gay Times magazines, images that had been unseen for thirty years. The Archive has since gained a substantial following with its affectionate look back on the brash, thriving gay scene of the 1990s. An era in which the pink pound and LGBTQ+ clubbing came to prominence.

The event is a chance to see a range of photographs from the queer scene of the 1990’s across England and hear the stories behind them. From small pubs to club nights in Heaven and The Paradise Factory to Pride events in London and Manchester.

Tickets are £10.00 or Pay What You Can Afford, with all proceeds going tosupport the work of Queer Cumbria CIC.

Doors open at 6pm, talk and Q and A at 7pm and bar open till 10pm.
