Last year we took to the streets of Soho and went to 15 queer venues demanding change. The 2010 Equality Actstates that all public venues must be fully accessible yet in 2018 not one queer space in central London is fully accessible. Next year is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and we DEMAND CHANGE!
How can we be proud of our LGBT+ identity at ‘Pride in London’ if we can’t even get to the bar to celebrate?
How can we mince, flirt and meet others if there is not even 1 LGBT+ bar or club that is fully accessible to the LGBT+ disabled community?
How can we be proud of my impairments if i’m discriminated to come on Pride?
Are you part of the LGBT+ disability community? Are you sick and tired of being ignored and tokenised? Want more action and less talk?
Well join Josh and Kevin – a ‘Queer Tours of London – A Mince Through time’ guides and sexual revolutionaries whilst we take to the streets and in true queer provocative style do an informative and interactive tour of Soho to share the lived realities of the LGBT+ disabled community.
Are you involved in a queer venue and want to imrpove your accessibility? Then get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out the great work at www.attitudeiseverything.org.uk.
There’s only 20 spaces for the tour so get in there quick –
Here’s the plan
2pm – Meeting point – Soho Square
2-3pm Placard making with the scores for each venue and the demands
3-5pm – Queer disabled Riot-tour!
5-6pm – Presentation of our demands in central London venue tbc. Invites are being sent to London’s LGBT+ cultural spaces managers.
Equality over profit – LGBT+ venues just stop pretending you are not under to be accessible – you know you should be – are you doing everything you can?
Access 4 All – we’ll chain ourselves to the steps by September if you don’t make an explicit statement of your intentions
