Islington Pride - A Guided Walk through 50 Years of LGBT History
Islington has a strong and well established LGBT+ community, with a long history of campaigning.
This guided walk is offered by Clerkenwell and Islington's Tour Guide Association (CIGA) in partnership with Islington Museum. The walk ties-in with the Islington's Pride exhibition at the Museum which launches the borough's LGBT+ archive and marks the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act of 1967 which decriminalised consensual sex in private between men over 21.
Starting at the Islington Museum and ending at Highbury Fields the walk includes significant "firsts" such as the UK's first gay mayor, MP, march and demonstration as well local characters such as Joe Orton and the extraordinary Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
Please book to ensure a place on this walk.
