It’s 1987 and shop workers Paul and David are getting ready for a celebration of the 5th anniversary of LAVENDER MENACE, Scotland’s foremost lesbian, gay, feminist bookshop. From its humble beginnings in the cloakroom of an Edinburgh nightclub, (that saw a performance from the Village People!), this trailblazing venture has become the beating heart of Edinburgh’s LGBT community. But can it survive in Thatcher’s changing Britain of capitalism and commodification?

Love Song to Lavender Menace is a funny and moving testimony to the love and passion it takes to make something happen and the loss that is felt when you have to let it go.
