The Black Lesbian & Gay Centre curated by Veronica McKenzie - ​We Have Always Been Here Celebrating

This exhibition highlights some of the material held in the Haringey Vanguard collection which specifically relates to The Black Lesbian and Gay Centre. The first exhibition at Bruce Castle Museum took place in February 2021 and focused on the Haringey connection. We now come to Peckham where the Black Lesbian and Gay Centre opened in 1992.

The exhibition explores and celebrates the various support networks, campaigns and activism cultivated by the BAME LGBTQ+ community through the Black Lesbian and Gay Centre. It provides an important record of that time, and most definitely showed ‘We Have Always Been Here’.
