Border Force

Summer 2015 at Camden Centre London and Brighton Dome in Brighton

Border Force was a geo-political-immersive-disko  

A globalised clubland where we confronted xenophobia, challenged the drag of national identity and promoted freedom of movement

Duckie also presented Border Talk in June 2015 at the RVT

Amy Lamé hosted a panel debate around the wider issues raised by Duckie's summer event:  global freedom of movement, LGBT asylum law and practice in the UK and international queer human rights.

The line-up included Aderonke Apata, PJ Samuels, Paul Dillane (UKLGIG) and Jonathan Cooper (Human Dignity Trust).

Here is a video of the talk.
