Drag Queen nuns on the 55 bus, the grave of a drag king, and gay cabaret during The Blitz… uncover Hackney’s fascinating and not-to-be forgotten LGBTQI+ history with an interactive walking tour.
As part of the Council’s Hackney Pride 365 celebrations, Queer Tours of London will take people on a journey, telling the stories of the borough’s queer history, shedding light on the events, spaces, identities, repression and resistance that form a backdrop for LGBTQI+ lives today.
