Object history

This teddy bear is wearing a small t-shirt bearing a slogan and design by Gonul Zeki at the Lenthall Road Workshop, Haggerston.

After funding for the radical screen-printing collective the Lenthall Road workshop was withdrawn, photographer Gonul Zeki used the workshop as a commercial enterprise to print T-shirts and other merchandise for the developing lesbian and gay community, in particular for lesbians who were less catered for.

Gonul's unique brand of irreverent humour and slogans became a common site at Pride festivals.
