The Tate Modern is bringing a specially-made brew to their Tate Lates Pride celebration. The event sees the museum open their doors for a series of talks, performances, screenings and more, all celebrating LGBTQIA+ artists and creative communities. Industry-leading craft brewery, Queer Brewing, will also be offering up first pours of a special beer they’ve made for the event in partnership with Tate Eats and Drop Project Brewing.
Talks will range from a series of discussions of works from lesbian artists and creatives, to explorations of transgender artists and the impact of their works. Tate staff and volunteers will also be sharing their stories about and insights into some of the Tate’s collection. DJ sets will be running throughout the evening from The Rimmers, Queer Bruk and Donnie Sunshine, and guitarist Debbie Smith. There will also be screenings of short films featuring artists found in the Tate’s collection, and a chance to create your own pronoun badge with help from Anshika Khullar. Capping it all off is a digital display celebrating London’s LGBTQIA+ creative communities.
And beer, right?
Oh, yeah, and beer! Queer Brewing will be offering up their latest brew, a tropical pale ale called All Of Us Or None Of Us. Those trying it on the night will be amongst the first people to try the new beer. Lily Waite, Queer Brewing founder, will be on hand to discuss how producing great beer can support LGBTQIA+ communities. On the back of the motto, “drink beer, do good” she’ll discuss how Queer Brewing promotes visibility and builds community. All while advocating for LGBTQ+ rights, and raising money for vital charities.
The Tate Lates Pride celebration will take place June 24, from 6-10pm. The event is free to attend, with no ticket required for entry. Talks running throughout the night will require free tickets. These will be available on the day on a first comes, first served basis.
