Bristol’s very own Darryl Bullock discusses his new book

Darryl W. Bullock won the prestigious Penderyn Music Book Prize in 2022 with The Velvet Mafia, a thrilling account of the gay men who ran the swinging sixties. Join Darryl at Rough Trade on Nelson Street, for a celebration of his new book, the highly anticipated Pride, Pop and Politics: Music, Theatre and LGBT Activism, 1970–2022.

Pride, Pop and Politicspublished by Omnibus Press in June 2022charts the development of gay culture and the rise of LGBTQ politics in the UK, from the formation of the Gay Liberation Front to the present day, through the music that provided the soundtrack.

This informative, eye-opening book is the first to focus on the relationship between gay nightlife and political activism in Britain, and in the year we mark the first ever pride march in the UK we are excited to host this special event.

This exciting book launch event will feature author Darryl W. Bullock in conversation with host Mary Milton (BBC/Outstories), followed by a Q&A and a book signing.

£2 from your ticket will be donated to Bristol Pride.
