Queer History of King’s Cross

An exhibition from artist Elly Clarke exploring the history of the LGBTQI* community at King's Cross

Wednesday 27th June 2018 - Friday 27th July 2018

During the 80s and 90s, King’s Cross was a hub for the LGBTQI* scene. Many lived, worked, partied and campaigned here.

To coincide with Everyman’s Summer Love LGBTQI* film festival, artist Elly Clarke explores the rich history of the queer community in this ever-changing neighbourhood.

Summer Love film festival

This summer, King’s Cross is teaming up with the Everyman cinema to curate an open-air film programme of screenings, Summer Love.

A mix of popular musicals, family classics and documentaries have been selected in partnership with Pride in London and the Gay Times as part of Pride Week to celebrate summer love in the city.

Full programme to be announced. All films will be free to watch and will take place on the Regents Canal steps on Granary Square, moving into the Everyman theatre in case of rain.

Queer Encounter: A History of LGBTQI* King’s Cross exhibition is on display in Everyman Cinema from 27 June until 27 July, and admission is free. Check the full schedule of times, and find out more via the Everyman Cinema website.
