Images from Brighton Reists, an exhibtion curated by Queer In Brighton, and showing at the Marlborough Pub and theatre from March 27 2017 for two weeks.
This exhibition was the culmination of the first 6 months of running Brighton LGBTIQ+ History Club, and was developed collectively using archival material from the keep.
Brighton Resists uses the Section 28 campaign as a starting point to look at the history of LGBTQ+ activism in our city. Using collections at The Keep (University of Sussex) and from the Queer in Brighton archive, as well as pictures from Melita Dennett's personal collection, this exhibition gives snapshots of when our communities have come together to resist oppressive legislation, harassment and invisibility.
