MYRA DUBOIS, ROYAL VAUXHALL TAVERN, KENNINGTON LANE
A cabaret evening at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern hosted by Myra DuBois, winner of Best Drag Act at the London Cabaret Awards 2013. The Rotherham-born Ms DuBois is here joined on the stage by two audience members. The year 2013 marked the 150th anniversary of the Royal Vauxhall Tavern which opened in 1863 with John Charles Taylor as publican. During the 1940s war years, female impersonators would often perform here attracting a local gay clientele and the pub has continued to do so since, making it London's longest-running gay venue.Digital image by kind permission of Enzo Peccinotti.
