Between 1986 and 1990, In The Pink was a free LGBT+ newspaper published monthly at the Trade Union Centre in Digbeth and distributed to groups, pubs, and clubs around the West Midlands. The paper's content varied from interview and listings to more political articles, thought pieces and health advice.
For this year's festival, SHOUT Artist in Residence Sean Burns has edited a new issue of the paper, referencing the original formatting and commissioning a new collective of voices to reflect on Birmingham in the 1980s, discuss personal and collective histories and address some of the matters facing LGBT+ people in the region today.
Join us for a pre-festival In The Pink launch party at Grand Union on Friday 2nd November from 6 pm as part of November’s Digbeth First Friday and be the first to see this new edition. Issues will be distributed at venues across the Gay Village and the West Midlands throughout November.
Free edition, available from Grand Union Gallery and at locations accross the city.
