Ana Matronic from the Scissor Sisters spent her late night Saturday programme on BBC Radio Two looking back at the music and personalities that made up the legendary nightclub Studio 54 in New York, on the occasion of the club’s forty fifth anniversary. Of course, it doesn’t exist anymore, having closed down in 1980. However, as Ana’s guests explained, the club was an important part of LGBT+ culture in the decade of liberation, between the birth of the modern gay movement at the end of the sixties and the onset of the AIDS pandemic in the early eighties. Ana span the disco discs and reminisced on an important period of sexual freedom, experimentation in music and drugs, and hedonism. Studio 54’s legacy can still be felt today, in music, fashion and culture across dance music and clubland.
