What is QQT?
Queer Question Time is a community-led discussion event that debates current LGBTQ+ issues as well as local and national politics.
It was established in 2009 by Mike Kear, who produced the event for six years at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern. In 2015 David Robson became the current producer of QQT using the event as a vehicle for community engagement with the Wandsworth LGBTQ+ Forum.
Previous Hosts have included: Evan Davies, Amy Lame, Stuart Who (who still Chairs in today’s line up) and more currently Ola Jide (Son of a Tutu) & Meth.
Robson has produced a different series each year since 2015 also at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern.
