A series of flyers designed by HomoCult for Attitude at the Academy.

Thanks to Lucy Scher for sending these in.

Attitude was an ahead-of-its time queer club night at the Academy in August 1991, promoted by Lucy Scher, and a pre-cursor the hugely successful Flesh at the Hacienda.

In 1990, Lucy has put together 'The Summer of Lesbian Love', a successful women-only night at the Hac.

Hacienda Entertainments Manager Paul Cons had asked her to do another event the following year, but a gun incident at the Hac led to the night (this time called Attitude and welcoming a mixed crowd) being moved to the Academy.

Attitude was a big success and led to Paul and Lucy's joint venture 'A Bit Ginger' - the promotions company behind Flesh at the Hacienda.

Queer art collective HomoCult did projected visuals at this event that a some people found upsetting!
