Event description

Description

Islington has been highly influential in the growth of the LGBT+ community, its organisation and rights through the 20th and 21st century. Join Islington’s Pride on a walk around Kings Cross and celebrate activism and community support from the setting up of the London Gay Switchboard in the 1970s through to current organisations such as Say it Loud and Gendered Intelligence. Relive the heady days of the Scala cinema movie nights and The Bell Pub. The walk finishes at Central Station pub who have supported every spectrum of LGBT society from SM Dykes to the Gay Christian movement since the early 1990s. Meet journalists and Derek Jarman, the Kings Cross Steelers and Grace’s cricket group.

The walk will start at Kings Cross Station. Meet under the clock on the concourse at the front of the station, on the Euston Road. The walk will finish at the Central Station pub which is a few minutes walk from Kings Cross station.

This is a free walk but booking is essential


The walk is led by a guide from Islington Guided Walks, the Mayor of Islington's official tour guides and created in partnership with and funded by Isliington's Pride.
