Just Coping 25

Twenty-five years ago, JUST COPING at 333 Club brought you a hybrid night of LGBTQ+ creatives working outside the mainstream with cult New York cabaret from KIKI & HERB (future trans icon JUSTIN VIVIAN BOND and partner KENNY MELLMAN), desperate filmmakers like LUTHER PRICE and EMILY RICHARDSON, defective fanzines from LET ME FEEL YOUR FINGER FIRST, neurotic DJs including superstar DJ TOM STEPHAN, future Electroclash pioneers and Nag Nag Nag founders FIL OK and JONNY SLUT, future Horse Hospital curator JAMES B.L. HOLLANDS and much more.  Celebrating the Jubilee and LGBTQ+ History Month with a commemorative show at VFD Gallery, exhibiting ephemera from the 1998 event and audio testimonies from the original participants, we talk to the organisers.  PLUS; A&S Police organise their first LGBTQIA outreach gathering as promised, we talk to CI Vicks Hayward-Melen.
