‘Soul of a Movement: Queer Nation’ is an online platform built around a stylised map of the UK and Ireland, populated by video submissions from LGBTQIA+ people from all walks of life, responding to the question: “What is Pride in 2020?”
Created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first ever Pride march (which took place on June 28th 1970) this virtual world features a constellation of markers, each one corresponding to a short film submitted by a member of the public.
Based on a concept by Gareth Pugh and Carson McColl, the platform was designed by the globally renowned digital artist Jon Emmony, and created in collaboration with web designers Rifke Sadleir and Daniel Baragwanath.
The project is intended as a space where people can discover their own personal agency and share their dreams for the future. It will continue to accept and feature new submissions indefinitely, and will exist in perpetuity as a public resource and living archive of Queer Culture in the UK and Ireland.
This is a space where we can celebrate our history and political roots — entirely free from corporate influence — on the anniversary of a momentous turning point in LGBTQIA+ history.
ABOUT THE WIDER PROJECT
SOUL OF A MOVEMENT is a multi-disciplinary non-profit art project that was created to celebrate Queer Resistance in the UK and Ireland fifty years on from the Stonewall Uprising (1969) and the first ever Pride march (1970). Initiated by British creative directors Carson McColl and Gareth Pugh, and developed in collaboration with executive creative producer Juliette Larthe, the project launched in June 2019 and will run indefinitely.
Thus far the project has resulted in the feature length documentary ‘Soul of a Movement: Four Days in June’ (2019) and a major new digital project titled ‘Soul of a Movement: Queer Nation.’
The community that has engaged with the project so far includes grassroots organisations from across the UK and Ireland, such as The Outside Project, LGSMigrants, the Time for Inclusive Education Campaign, The 343 Belfast and the UK Voguing/Ballroom scene.
At heart, this is about taking time to rediscover our political roots, rejecting the corporate takeover of our Pride, and amplifying those voices in our community who have been purposefully marginalised or erased from the culture.
The project aims to communicate the idea that while the Stonewall Uprising lit a fuse, it is these individuals and organisations (and those across the world just like them) that carry forward the revolutionary fire today.
