Glad to be Gay: Camden’s LGBT Heritage
Thursday 22 June at 6:00 pm
Saturday 24 June at 11:00 am
Saturday 1 July at 11:00 am
Explore Camden’s rich heritage of sexual diversity in Fitzrovia, Bloomsbury and King’s Cross with Camden Tour Guides. See the notorious watering holes of the Bohemian demimonde of the 1920s and 1930s, the home of the vanguard of lesbian and gay theatre and London’s only LGBT bookshop. See where the Bloomsbury Set who challenged Victorian codes of behaviour lived and the house where the great genius of polari Kenneth Williams was brought up. We will hear about how the LGBT community rallied together to respond to the HIV/AIDS early crisis and end our walk at Camden Town Hall where the first same sex weddings were joyously celebrated.
