Pleasure Gardens by Freddie Machin
Pubs and clubs that champion the LGBTQ community are being closed down across London. The Royal Vauxhall Tavern was recently awarded listed building status – the first in England on the basis of its LGBTQ cultural significance – but the battle is not over, and dedicated queer spaces continue to fall. Based on interviews with cabaret artists, drag queens, property developers, and punters, Pleasure Gardens explores how the cultural landscape of London is changing as it becomes desirable to the super-rich – and how this impacts on vulnerable communities.
