Happy Pride Month!

Queer and Now @ Tate Britain

Event link

Whilst I am critical of the Tate as an establishment and support artist Liv Wynter in her resignation from her Artist Residence (statement here: http://livwynterartist.co.uk/RESIGNATION-FROM-TATE), any coming together of marginalised people in such a huge establishment is a positive in some way.

Frida Khalo: Making herself up @ V&A

Event link

This exhibition is all about the wonderful queer icon, but maybe read this article (Link: http://www.dazeddigital.com/art-photography/article/40259/1/frida-kahlo-is-not-your-symbol) before you get to the gift shop.

Refugee Week: Choose love @ Second Home

Event link

If you want to celebrate pride with kindness and working with people in need this is a week full of events to raise money for or work directly with refugees in London. Pride began as a political protest, so if you can, carry the tradition forward for the people who need it today. See their website for a full list of events.

ELCAF 2018 @ Round Chapel

Event link

East London Comics and Art Festival 2018 is going to have loads of artists to chat to a buy from and is a great way to see what’s working commercially in the illustration world.

Bermondzines @ DIY Space for London

Event link

For something a little less mainstream DIY Space for London is a volunteer run queer friendly disabled friendly venue in South east London and they’re hosting their third zine fair, which is sure to be filled with inspiration and all things punk.
