Back in the summer some of the team from Screen Archive South East visited Margate Pride. As part of the stall there the team had a series of disposable 35mm cameras. The cameras were handed out to attendees at Pride, and asked to record their day. They were also provided with a prepaid envelope and asked to drop the camera in their local postbox, after which it would hopefully make its way back to Brighton!
Cameras were handed to OSH volunteers, families, young peoples charities and groups of friends. They travelled through the parade, to a neuroqueer event, as well as to Dreamland and across Margate!
OSH volunteers, with Stasia and Ellie from Screen Archive South East, were among the parade interviewing attendees about their thoughts, feelings and reflections on the day. These have been compiled, alongside some of the developed images, into the below photomontage, capturing a snippet of (a very very hot) Margate Pride 2022.
Below is an extract from the full montage. The full video will be added to the archive’s collection.
