David Hoyle: Diamond

About David Hoyle: Diamond

Diamond is an avant-garde, angry and often hilarious journey into LGBT liberation from 1957 to present day, told via the thrilling, passionate biography of David Hoyle, with musical interludes from London drag four-piece The Lipsinkers.

Weaving together intimate personal experience with public events, Diamond charts David’s rise from a gay adolescent working in BHS in Blackpool to Channel 4’s famous anti-drag queer cult phenomenon.

Reclaiming renowned historical moments and reflecting on the lives of prominent gay figures such as Alan Turing, Diamond revisits LGBT political history through Hoyle’s provocative and profound lens.

Navigating and dissecting counter-cultures and British attitudes towards them, Diamond will appeal to all with liberation in their heart.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for David Hoyle: Diamond are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
