About the event
Join us for our amazing Proudly Film Night 🎬
Disco - Soundtrack of a Revolution
In 1970s, in the aftermath of the Stonewall Riots, a sense of liberation fuelled a new sound from New York. In their quest for a safe space to meet – free from discrimination and violence – New York’s gay, black and minority ethnic communities started coming together in apartments and basement bars to dance. It was the beginning of a new kind of music and a pioneering dance floor culture that would sweep the world and change dance music forever.
