How long have you been running LGBT events?

Since the mid 1980’s - I have a long history of being in a lot of organisations and fighting for a lot of things.

What was your first event?

Name: Maxine

Where you are originally from: I grew up in Northamptonshire with my Jamaican parents, 2 brothers, three sisters and Ginger the cat.

How long you have lived in London: I moved 25 years ago on a mission to find another black lesbian. I was pleasantly surprised to find a whole community but saddened by the realisation I didn't invent it!

The latest regular event at SHE, The BackSeat (2nd and last Wednesday of the month) is bringing soul, electro, rhythm and blues, "make out music" to the girls.

We asked promoters Maxie and Bridget a few little questions...

How long have you been running LGBT events and events generally? 

Maxie: I am part of a musical collective called Gravy, with whom I have been putting on gigs (mainly in Norwich) for around 7 years.
