Jade, Emi & Molly

Photographed by Tom Marshak.

Together with local art students Jade, Emi and Molly we created a short story about the young queer community searching for their safe space around town. Emi: “London has always had a complicated relationship with queer identities, and as a queer person finding spaces to exist in comfortably is a task in itself. People will try to tell you the UK is a safe progressive haven for LGBT+people, but more and more gay clubs and spaces are being used by predatory creeps, trans people are waiting months for healthcare and hate crime is on the rise. As long as we’ve told there’s no space for us, we try to build spaces for ourselves.” Photographed by Tom Marshak.
