Body Movements is a new festival celebrating queer club culture. On Saturday October 9, Body Movements will take over 16 venues across Hackney Wick.
Conceived as a collaboration between DJ and radio host Saoirse and the team behind popular drag nightlife collective Little Gay Brother, Body Movements will gather together over 40 LGBTQIA+ collectives from across the UK dance music scene.
Saoirse has commented, ‘The queer clubbing scene has always been renowned for some of the best parties to ever exist. Body Movements wants to give prominence to those artists, parties and clubbers by bringing them all together and serving up a truly unique festival for the UK.’
Little Gay Brother member Clayton Wright adds, ‘Body Movements is the first time that these queer music makers and crews, who make our industry so exciting and formidable, have come together like this. It’s about solidarity, celebrating each other’s subculture, and connecting with people and parties that you may never have experienced before. Everyone involved is pushing boundaries and creating spaces that are hugely important to our LGBTQI+ community. It’s queer clubbing at its finest.’
