With the month of Pride now underway for the 50th year, Better Bankside has announced its plans to commemorate the occasion.

Bankside is kicking off its Pride events with the Faces of Bankside show from Wednesday 29 June. Created by photographer Eve Milner LRPS – a resident of Bankside herself – the exhibition is dedicated to the diversity and uniqueness of the LGBTQ+ community who work and reside in the area. Those featured in the exhibition have given accounts of the places in Bankside that are special to them and how they’ve seen things change for the LGBTQ+ community in the area over the last 50 years.

Eve Milner LRPS says of the show: “As a proud ally of the queer community, it has been an honour to work on this project to create portraits with local people, who I hope feel seen and celebrated.”

The exhibition will run for one month, under the distinctive archways of Omeara Bar, and is free to visit.  Check out the event page for the full listing and to download the exhibition handout.
