Catch One Of The Queer BFI Screenings Then Grab A Bite On The Southbank

Throughout June

When the weather inevitably humbles us and our dreams of wearing our summer wardrobe, we’d advise taking cover in the Southbank’s BFI cinema. Throughout June, it’ll be screening a number of LGBTQ+ films, like Guiraudie’s Stranger By The Lake and A Star Is Reborn, featuring Judy Garland. Find tickets on the website and if you’re peckish afterwards (which is also inevitable), check out our guide on where to eat around Southbank.

Get A Queer Tour of The British Museum

July 1st

Yes, you might have already paid a visit to the British Museum, but we’re guessing you didn’t have queer historians Sacha and Sheldon to show you around. On the 1st July, they’re organising an LGBTQ+ history tour of the museum, where you can learn about queer heritage and the meaning behind the rainbow flag. Once you’re finished there, head to Master Wei for some excellent beef biang biang noodles—it’s only a six-minute walk away.
