About this Archive
Founded in 1978, the London Blues was a club for gay and bi-sexual men who shared an interest in uniforms and western/denim clothes. In practice, it was mainly for those with military, naval, air force, police and other uniform interests - whether as wearers or admirers. The club met in several different venues in London throughout its history, including The Green Man, Heaven, the Laurel Tree and Central Station. The club had relationships with other motor sports clubs, including UK clubs and those based abroad.
