#WeAreTheBlackCap: Four Years Fighting - a retrospective photography exhibition with talks and films @ Castlehaven Community Association

#WeAreTheBlackCap – Four years fighting: a retrospective photography exhibition, talks and films. Curated by Peter Herbert from the Arts Project and Chris Barlow & Michael Chan from Outings in Art.

The Black Cap, London’s legendary LGBTQ+ pub and cabaret venue, has been a haven and centre of queer life and culture since the early 1960s. In April 2015 it was suddenly closed to be turned into luxury flats. For nearly four years since then, then #WeAreTheBlackCap grassroots campaign has campaigned for the venue to re-open, successfully resisting numerous attempts to repurpose the building and maintaining a colourful and noisy presence outside the Black Cap nearly every Saturday since the closure.

This small exhibition looks back at the campaign so far, with a selection of lively photographs from the last four years plus talks and short films about what has been called the country’s most visible LGBTQ+ campaign.
