AMY LAMÉ

Diva (UK) - - Trends -

This month we’re cel­e­brat­ing London’s Night Czar who, along with Mayor Sadiq Khan, has pledged to pre­serve and pro­tect the cap­i­tal’s LGBT venues. More than half of the city’s queer spa­ces have van­ished in the last 10 years, with les­bian bars among the worst af­fected, ac­cord­ing to a new re­port. Lamé, who co-founded iconic night Duckie, de­scribed the sit­u­a­tion as “com­pletely and to­tally un­ac­cept­able”, and has promised to make pro­tect­ing these venues a pri­or­ity in her role. She said: “It’s im­por­tant for us that we are able to re­tain our cul­ture, that we are able to re­tain our iden­tity where we have safe places where we can fully ex­press our­selves, be ex­actly who we want to be.” Bravo, Amy! We’re with you ev­ery step of the way.
