SPECIAL FILM SCREENING: Betty Bourne: "It goes with the shoes".
INTRODUCED BY DIRECTOR/PRODUCER GABY JEFFS.
It Goes With the Shoes tells the story of gay rights icon, Bette Bourne who took on the establishment with high heels and lipstick, playing a vital role in the fight for gay liberation during the 70's & 80's.
With camp-wit and outrageous humour the film sheds light on a hidden part of gay history: from the early meetings of the Gay Liberation Front, to the first mass gay protests in Europe. The film follows Bette’s life in a gay drag commune in London’s Notting Hill and then on to a European road trip with drag superstars, The Bloolips, a real life Priscilla Queen of the Desert adventure of discovery and politics.
With acclaimed playwright Mark Ravenhill as a guide, the film paints an uproarious and moving portrait of an engaging and charismatic gay icon.
Please note there will be a £5 admission charge for this event (pay on the door). This helps us cover room, equipment and film license costs with any remainder going to support Galha's charitable work.
We will be in Brockway Room from 7 though the film will start at 7.30PM.
