Princess:
The Queer Georgians

The promotional launch of this two year project is on Saturday 1 December at Royal Vauxhall Tavern at 11pm with an introduction by historian E-J Scott, choreography by Azara and starring Oberon White, Ellie Stamp & Azara

A Bent History Bachannal with Duckie

What was the London queer scene like 300 years ago?

Was it all blackmail, shame, silence and violence? Not really, just most of it.

From the Macaronis to the Molly Houses, the She-Husbands to the Subversive Spinsters, the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens to the early Old Bill, Duckie digs deeper and explores the benders and the gender offenders of the 18th century.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, infamous bent teeth-gnashing queer academic and archivist E-J Scott will lead a team of pioneering volunteers into the archives to see what they have been keeping from us all of these years.

Warning: This is not one of those nice BBC history projects with Lucy Wolsley about posh people and the Royals, this is Filth.

This project is suitable for recherché rubsters, bourgeois buggerantoes, legacy lesbos and all the old relics.

You might think homo heritage started with Gay Lib, but London's queer culture is as old as the city itself.

We are looking for volunteers to work on this, email ej@duckie.co.uk
