Discovering the Camden Lesbian Centre and Black Lesbian Group with Joy Miessi
We followed Joy Miessi on their discovery of the Camden Lesbian Centre and Black Lesbian Group archives in Glasgow Women’s library. The centre was the UK’s only dedicated space for lesbians for almost a decade, but closed in 1995 following the passing of Section 28 of Local Government Act, 1988, banning the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ in local governments and schools.
Directed by Shivani Hassard
Produced and researched by Joanna Boateng
