GATEWAYS GRIND d. Jacquie Lawrence, 2022 + Q&A with the director & actors Victoria Broom & Lu Corfield at Barbican (03 JUL 17:45).

“Standing outside the site of the legendary lesbian Gateways club, Sandi Toksvig sighs: “I swear this door used to be green. That’s the thing with lesbian landmarks. They literally get painted over.” Jacquie Lawrence’s touching, often very funny documentary revisits the history London’s longest-surviving lesbian club, with testimonies from the women who danced, drank and had the time of their lives there, including artist Maggi Hambling, writer Diana Souhami and poet Trudy Howson.”

“From riveting tales of wild nights on the dancefloor to its starring role in the film The Killing of Sister George (1968), this film is an important piece of lesbian history, and the perfect film to see for London Pride Weekend.” (Barbican)
