Discovering Kali. 25 years of the legendary club.
We’ve come out with a World Premiere screening! A collection of first hand stories shared by members of the LGBTQ+ Kali community, a peek behind the scene! Please join us!
“Club Kali provided me a home away from home! A fun, safe haven to celebrate my sexuality, gender expression and culture freely. It helped a queer gay immigrant like me to affirm myself and form good friends for life” Sanjay Kumar
Our World Premier was on FRIDAY 23 June 6pm @BFI with LIFF’s Too Desi Too Queer strand for a collection of screenings + Q&A.

WHAT KALI MEANS TO ME
“Ahhh Club Kali those unforgettable nights of coming together and being with MY PEOPLE. The ritual of choosing what to wear, getting ready, the fizz of excitement in the car, or the bike, heightening as we hit Holloway Road. It was the event of the month where we would dance to soul tunes with our chosen family, where we would laugh and flirt. And sometimes cry. My first time nearly 30 years go – life changing, life affirming and lifelong friendships formed. A safe place of belonging where we could be free, and our true selves.”

“Walking into a Club Kali event is like coming home…to the sexiest friends and chosen family you will ever have :)”
“Club Kali is so much more than a club night. It’s a place of safety and celebration that connects the South Asian LGBTQ+ community with its rich culture. It’s a place of love, acceptance and friendship all wrapped up in a night of incredible desi music and dancing. I think it’s one of the first places in London I felt a collective joy and freedom. I have made friends for life there, found and lost love, picked up useful welfare information and contacts, boogied until my feet hurt and made a head full of memories. Thank you for holding us all together and Ritu for DJ-ing us through the decades.”
