Interview: Polari Mission’s Jez Dolan for Corridor8Posted: September 3, 2012

An exhibition currently on at The John Rylands Library is only the start of a wide-ranging and multi-disciplinary project that promises further exhibitions, performance, visual artwork and audience participation. On a wet Sunday afternoon I threw on my fortuni lally drags for a guided troll around these very queer (and slightly risqué) archives and a screeve with Polari Mission. Fantabulosa (as they say)!
