About The Queer Alternative
The Queer Alternative began life in 2009 as a London LGBT+ Pride walking group. Their primary goal is to increase awareness and acceptance of queer people within the goth, metal and alternative scenes and raise the visibility of alternative people within mainstream gay culture. TQA aims to provide a safe space, both online and at events, for members of these subcultures to meet, network and share their passions. This year marks TQA’s first forray into event promotion outside Pride week, with the cabaret’s proceeds going towards a community float entry and after-party for this year’s Pride in London parade on 28th June 2014.
