‘Jenny STILL f*cking lives with Eric and Martin’ takes us on a informative journey of queer sex, something that most queer people have been denied. 

“Children are being taught they have an inalienable right to be gay. All of those children are being cheated of a sound start in life.” – Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, October 9, 1987.

30 years ago this year our Government introduced ‘Section 28’ which which banned the promotion of queer lifestyles in schools. In 2018 ‘Queer Tours of London’ and friends are reclaiming the teaching of queer culture and taking charge of how it should be taught because as queer people we refuse to ever be silenced. Today we are louder and prouder than ever before. Launched in 2017 for the 50th anniversary of partial decriminalisation of homosexuality ‘QUEER TOURS OF LONDON – A Mince Through Time’ exists to bring forth the visibility of our incredible community at large and the journey to how we became who we are today.
