Walk London’s rich history with Richard Cohen

FROM PREJUDICE TO PRIDE 28 February at 6.00pm

Celebrate LGBT History Month 2021 by joining my virtual tour From Prejudice to Pride.  It is an exploration of Camden’s deep and rich heritage of sexual diversity. Learn about the extraordinary range of people and places that are part of Camden’s LGBT heritage.  Hear about the Molly Houses, the Victorian cross-dressers and the notorious and much policed watering holes of the Bohemian demimonde of the 1920s and 30s. Learn about the theatre which was the vanguard of lesbian and gay drama and London’s only LGBT bookshop.  Meet the Bloomsbury Set who challenged Victorian codes of behaviour lived and the great genius of polari Kenneth Williams.  Hear about how the LGBT community rallied together to respond to the HIV/AIDS crisis in the 1980s.  Witness the struggle against the hated Section 28 and the joyous celebrations of the first Same Sex weddings at Camden Town Hall.

This virtual tour is a fundraiser for All Out, an international LGBT charity combatting homophobia around the world.   Pay £5.00 to access the virtual tour but there is no upper limit to donations.  Please give generously.
