Mapping LGBT History

4 April 2017

Activists from Queer Tours of London to map a history of diversity and resistance. 

A group of activists is mapping London's LGBT history. The project Queer Tours of London was set up last year as a series of walks aimed at sharing the complex history of LGBT activism in the city, such as the town hall in North London where one of the first gay weddings in Britain took place and iconic bars and pubs.

The project also seeks to shine a light on the closure of venues where services were provided. “It's not just bars and clubs and cabaret spaces, that's LGBT mental health services, HIV services, domestic violence services," an activist told Reuters.
