A short queer history walking tour (90 mins approximately once we start off) of central Brighton locations featuring a small selection of our past local heroes, villains, interesting people, buildings, places and events. From the bookshop destroyed by Britain's obscenity laws, to a queer fascist, to a groundbreaking photographic artist, to anti-discrimination protests that contributed to cultural and legal changes, and more.
Ticket fees received will be donated to local LGBTQ+ organisations.

Content Warnings: Strong Language Additional Content Warning:
As part of talking about LGBTQ+ experiences over the past hundred or so years, there is inevitably some mention of individually and/or collectively traumatic events. There is also some unavoidable swearing while telling the story of how the Unicorn Bookshop House was destroyed by the obscenity laws then in place and reading from one of the pamphlets that was a focus of the court case.
