From the V&A to a south London chicken shop, the BBZ duo are throwing London’s best parties for queer people of colour

London, United Kingdom

Since their first exhibition-cum-shubz in April 2016, BBZ have been remoulding what queer nights look like on London’s club scene. Their format: a for-us-by-us style of art curation followed by a party, which showcases the best in QTIPOC art work and DJs.

The duo behind BBZ are filmmaker Nadine Davis and photographer Tia Simon-Campbell, who draw on the creative output of south London to ensure they always bring in the most hype and the best-dressed crowds around. From recreating a Caribbean living room at gal-dem’s V&A takeover, to setting up a queer Valentine’s pottery class for loved ones to re-enact that scene from Ghost, to teaming up with Peckham-based radio station Balamii and south London’s most-loved chicken shop branch Morley’s for a party, BBZ’s creative collaborations are as diverse as their audiences.
