In The Pink is a free LGBT+ newspaper edited by artist Sean Burns and supported by SHOUT Festival and Grand Union. Between 1986 and 1990, In The Pink was published monthly at the Trade Union Resource Centre in Digbeth and distributed to groups, pubs, and clubs around the West Midlands. The paper's content varied from interviews and listings to more political articles, thought pieces and health advice.
The November 2018 issue of In The Pink references the original paper, inviting a new collective of voices to reflect on Birmingham in the 1980s, share personal and collective histories and discuss some of the matters facing LGBT+ people in the region today.
We will launch In The Pink on 2nd November at Digbeth First Friday at Grand Union, and copies will be available across the West Midlands so don’t forget to pick one up.
