Ajamu - for Outside Edge

This picture of Ajamu with material from the rukus! archive is taken from the Museum of London’s Outside Edge flickr photostream. ‘Outside Edge’ was an exhibition at the Museum in Docklands, curated by rukus!, that explored the history of the black LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community in Britain, with a focus on London.
