The Impact of COVID-19 on Queer Nightlife in London

  • McCormack, Mark (PI)
  • Measham, Fiona (CoI)

Project Details


The research will assess the impact of Covid-19 on creative practitioners in London’s queer nightlife economy, and the problems that they have faced such as financial (in)security, community engagement and physical and mental wellbeing. The study will also take into account how these impacts differ by age, class, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and sexuality. This research grant has been awarded to Mark McCormack by Queer Arts Consortium (QUAC) thanks to Arts Council England funding. QUAC is a collaboration between Raze Collective, a charity that supports and develops LGBTQI+ performance in the UK, originally established in response to threats and closures facing queer spaces in London, And What? Queer Arts Festival, Fringe! Queer Arts & Film Festival and The Cocoa Butter Club.
