Event CTSG University of Brighton 26/04/2023 3-5pm Proud Pink Sky Redfern Jon Barrett

Redfern Jon Barrett presents their work Proud Pink Sky breaks down the binary between utopia and dystopia—presenting an ambitopian vision of the world’s first gay state. A glittering metropolis of 24 million people, Berlin is a bustling world of pride parades, polyamorous trysts, and even an official gay language. Its distant radio broadcasts are a lifeline for teenagers William and Gareth, but is there a place for them in the deeply divided city? Meanwhile, young mother Cissie loves Berlin’s towering high rises and chaotic multiculturalism, yet she’s never left her heterosexual district—not until she discovers a walled-off slum of perpetual twilight, home to the city’s forbidden trans residents.

Challenging assumptions of sex and gender, Proud Pink Sky questions how much we must sacrifice to find identity and community.

Event CTSG 13/02/2023 3:30pm For a Walking Tour Brighton’s LGBTQ Spaces – Then, Now, Next

Brighton has a long history of association with sex and sexualities, and from the mid 20th century it became known as ‘gay and lesbian’ (and now LGBTQ) hotspot. As more LGBTQ people came to the city they made use of existing spaces for socialising, sex, activism, and community-building – and started to create their own spaces too.

This 90 minute guided walk around central Brighton will introduce you to the oldest and the newest LGBTQ spaces in the city. You’ll visit sites of

early discreet gay bars,
‘cottages’ used for public sex,
women’s and lesbian activism,
clubbing and partying,
and remembering those lost to HIV/AIDS.

Along the way you’ll learn about the differences in Brighton’s LGBTQ spaces over the past century, recent changes in their use, and the real concerns over their future.
