Starting from the illegal Molly Houses, through blacked-out Earls Court bars, into rainbow Soho and beyond, Queer Today Gone Tomorrow thanks the lost venues that built LGBTQ+ London and celebrates the places we still have today. The exhibition runs from 23 – 29 June, 2024.

60% of London’s LGBTQ+ venues have closed since 2005, and LGBTQ+ hate crime is at an all-time high. With more than ever identifying as LGBTQ+, this exhibition highlights the importance of LGBTQ+ spaces for people to explore and be themselves safely.

Take an interactive journey through London’s queer history. 

The exhibition invites you to contribute by sharing a favourite memory of an LGBTQ+ space, which will be transformed into art. Additionally, you can help raise funds for Queer Britain at the show, demonstrating the impact and importance of queer spaces on people’s lives.

People can even contribute to the show by submitting their stories of venues that have impacted their life, with stories being displayed as part of the exhibition to raise money for Queer Britain.

RECOGNITION: About the artist

RECOGNITION is an artist from London, England, who is queer and neurodivergent. The name RECOGNITION serves a dual purpose. Firstly, it signifies the work’s intent to those viewing the pieces. Secondly, the constant flow of new ideas and impulses that come with ADHD can make it challenging to stay focused. Having this name serves as a reminder of direction and helps him resist going off track during the creative process. Other projects are managed under a different name to keep things separate.
