A Qu__r Archive of the North: artist talk with Stuart Linden Rhodes
We are delighted to share the news of an artist talk with photographer Stuart Linden Rhodes
Stuart Linden Rhodes, a retired Senior Lecturer from Leeds Beckett University, established the Instagram account @Linden_Archives during the lockdowns of 2020-21, scanning and digitising hundreds of reportage photographs shot for All Points North and Gay Times magazines during the 1990s. These images had been unseen for thirty years, and the archive has since gained a substantial following. The first edition of the photo book Out & About with Linden: A Queer Archive of the North, was a selected study of the pub and club scene from Birmingham to Newcastle, with contributions from Boy George, Julian Clary, Mel B, Paul O’Grady, Su Pollard and more. Initially published by filmmaker Joe Ingham in 2022, a second edition was published in 2023 by PARIAH PRESS. This artist talk explores the brash, thriving and diverse gay scene and queer club culture in the UK in the 1990s, a period also marked by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, homophobia, and discriminatory laws.
