London’s Outside Edge Highlights Black Gay History

Ajamu, Fullwood and others facilitate discussion

by j. brotherlove

Outside Edge, a small arts exhibition commemorating black British LGBT history of the last 30 years, opens in London’s Museum in Docklands on February 7 for LGBT History Month.

On Saturday 23 February, the museum will host a study day with provocative personalities like Ajamu of rukus! Federation Ltd., Lynette Goddard (Staging Black Feminisms), Ted Walker Brown, and Steven G Fullwood (Black Gay & Lesbian Archive Project).


Fullwood has extended notes and quotes about the exhibit:

Ajamu, co-curator of OE says: ‘This has been a wonderful opportunity to develop our community outreach programme and create an equitable partnership with a mainstream organisation. London has always been a rich culturally diverse city and black LGBT history, heritage and lived experiences have been an integral part of this rich tapestry.’

This is a fantastic and overdue event. Some of my favorite queer black artists are British (Jackie Kay, Rikki Beadle Blair, Skin of Skunk Anansie and Isaac Julien to name a few). I really have to get on that passport thing.

That looks interesting. Do you know how long the exhibit will run? Perhaps there’s time to book a flight.

Steven should be able to get an answer. I’ve sent him an email and will update here.

Per Steven, the exhibition ends on April 4, 2008.
