A new exhibition about an influential drag queen has opened at a National Trust site. Dedicated to “Birmingham LGBTQ+ icon” Twiggy, the exhibition opened on Friday at the Back to Backs, in the heart of the city’s Gay Village. Twiggy – The Drag Market is an exploration of the creative process behind “one of the best-known personas of Birmingham’s queer scene”. The exhibition features costumes and photography from the past 40 years. In the free exhibition, located above the Back to Backs’ second-hand bookshop, visitors can follow Twiggy’s journey, starting in the early 1980s when Twiggy worked as a shop assistant at the well-loved Birmingham punk shop Kahn and Bell in Hurst Street, run by Jane Kahn and Patti Bell.
