In a nutshell

Free discussion on QTIPOC clubbing and nightlife

Go on...

Night Czar Amy Lamé joins Vogue scene entrepreneur and dancer Jay-Jay Revlon, Bootylicious promoter Thomas Mukte and DJs & activists Munroe Bergdorf, Kartel Brown and Yvonne Taylor in this urgent conversation about LGBTQI+ clubbing for black and minority ethnic communities.  What can we learn from the longterm legacy of the underground BAME LGBT scene?  What new trends in nightlife are emerging?  Are there any safe spaces or do venues discriminate against QTIPOC promoters and clubbers?  How can we better support the diversity of the queer scene?

What to Expect

A free 90 minute public panel discussion and powwow with six players and activists and questions and comments from the audience.
