LGBTQI Nightlife in London: 1986 to the present

This project aims to build an evidence base to document the presence of existing and past LGBTQI spaces in order to understand the value of these spaces for LGBTQI and wider communities, and to the cultures and heritage of London. The research will profile a range of spaces that have been closed since 1986, and those that are currently at risk, gathering data on the factors behind this; as well as documenting spaces that are successful, commercially or otherwise, and/or that have been protected by community action. The research has been designed in collaboration with community activists. The case of London will be cross-referenced to international comparators.
