CAGS Monthly Meeting

Blowing the Lid
Tuesday, 19 February 2019 - 8:00pm

Author Stuart Feather will tell us about giant cucumbers, fake nuns, dead light-bulbs; weapons of the first lesbian and gay sexual revolution whose demonstrations were colourful, camp, and bitingly sarcastic, wrong-footing authority at every turn. Maoists, Marxists, Radical Feminists and Radical Queens struggled to define the idea of gay liberation.

Venue: 
The Spread Eagle, 39 - 41 Katherine Street, Croydon CR0 1NX
