Bette Bourne: "It goes with the shoes".

BetteBourne: It Goes With The Shoes – a film for LGBT HISTORY MONTH
Your chance to host a screening of the most important film to be made about queer history in the UK this year.
It Goes With the Shoes, tells the story of gay rights icon, Bette Bourne who took on the establishment with high heels and lipstick, hiding a political punch under a velvet glove and playing a vital role in gay liberation in the 70’s & 80’s.
With touching insight and outrageous humour the film sheds light on a hidden part of gay history: from the early meetings of the Gay Liberation Front, to the first mass gay protests in Europe, to life in a gay drag commune and a European road trip with drag superstars, The Bloolips,  a real-life Priscilla Queen of the Desert story. With acclaimed playwright Mark Ravenhill (The RSC and ITV’s Vicious) as
a guide, the film paints an uproarious and moving portrait of an engaging and charismatic gay icon.
The film was launched at the BFI London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, where it played to sell out screens, the Sheffield Documentary Festival (also sold out) and at a special screening at the V&A where it became the best attended LGBT event they’ve ever hosted! Audiences have loved it: younger viewers have been fascinated by a part of gay history they often know very little about and older audiences have
been moved to see a crucial period properly recorded and celebrated.
“Loved @bettebournefilm at the V&A – an amazing piece of social history centred on an amazing individual”
The film is available  to screen on DVD for LGBT groups as part of the LGBT HISTORY MONTH. If you’d  like to hold a screening please contact the producer, Jeremy Jeffs – or keep up  to date with @bettebournefilm.
