Priscilla + Toxic Queen: Sydney Mardi Gras Special

Duration: 104 min

Our monthly LGBT+ film club Out At Clapham has teamed up with local art gallery Studio Voltaire to help celebrate the life and work of the late Australian artist David McDiarmid.

McDiarmid (1952–1995) was an artist and designer as well as a prominent political activist and pioneer of Australia’s gay liberation movement. He was artistic director of the Sydney Mardi Gras in the 1980s, which this month celebrates its 40th Anniversary.

McDiarmid's vibrant artworks ‘Rainbow Aphorisms’ (1993-1995), are currently on public display at Studio Voltaire, on the facade of neighbouring LGBTQ+ venue Two Brewers, across the London underground network and at other temporary locations across Clapham and Brixton, in partnership with Art on the Underground and This is Clapham.

Out At Clapham continue this celebration of McDiarmid's work with the short documentary film Toxic Queen, made by his close friend and filmmaker Fiona Cunningham-Reid, followed by Stephan Elliott's bright, glitzy and fabulously queer Australian road movie The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert.
