LGSM Pits and Perverts Gig Postcard
Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) is an activist group that formed in solidarity with the striking miners in 1984. Mark Ashton, one of the founders, saw the struggle of the miners as the same faced by gay people fighting for their rights against a government that would not listen.
LGSM organised fundraising events like the one depicted in this postcard, a concert from 1984 featuring Bronski Beat at Camden’s Electric Ballroom. The postcard was designed by LGSM member Kevin Franklin.
