'Bette Bourne – It Goes With The Shoes'

V&A, Knightsbridge Friday July 5 2013 19:30 - 21:30

Film telling the story of activist and performer Bette Bourne, who played a vital role in the fight for gay liberation during the 1970s and 1980s. With camp wit and outrageous humour, the film traces queer history from the beginning of the Gay Liberation Front in Britain to the first mass gay rights protests, following Bette’s life in a gay commune in Notting Hill and on tour with radical drag theatre company Bloolips. This documentary paints a moving portrait of an engaging and charismatic icon. Followed by a Q&A with

Bette Bourne and the writer Mark Ravenhill.
