We exist to shine a light on London’s rich LGBTQI history through creative and life-affirming interactive tours. We tell the stories of London’s queer history, shedding light on the lives, spaces, identities, repression and resistance that form the backdrop of LGBTQI lives today. We do this through educational, accessible and interactive walking tours, cabarets, street-art and events that bring life to the complexities and lived experiences of our history, present and vision for the future.
We have been honoured to collaborate with institutions and social movements in every corner of London. 2017 highlights include Rebel Dykes ‘Brixton Dykes on the Rampage’, the African Rainbow Family on LGBT+ Migrant rights; crawling up the House of Lords to commemorate radical sexual freedom history; agitating queer venues to become more accessible; launched ‘Unfinished Business – LGBTQIA+ Voices of the Revolution’ festival and tore up the streets of London in drag on the ‘Bang Bus’ – see here for reviews.
“Queer Tours provides a vital, enthralling and entertaining glance into an oft-ignored aspect of London’s history. This is a must-do for not just the LGBT+ community, but everyone interested in this city’s cultural landscape!” Emma Kroeger, Dalston Superstore – Marketing & Bookings Coordinator
“London’s LGBTQ+ heritage is rich, diverse and important: but is often hidden and in danger of being forgotten. Our collaborations with Queer Tours are energetic, hopeful and vital explorations of this history.” Tom Furber and Jan Pimblett – London Metropolitan Archives
“Queer Tours is a fantastic way to see London with fresh eyes. It gives you the chance to uncover the hidden stories, both recent and historical, of LGBTQ voices and experiences. Walking the city really brings to life the way in which radical lives can shape our present.”Juliet Chard, Stonewall
