Queer Tours of London launched in 2017 for the 50th anniversary of partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in Britain. The tours exist to shine a light on London’s rich LGBTQ+ history through interactive tours, artistic interventions, protests and informative events. On this tour you will take in some of the sites of Earls Court. You will hear stories of how queers fought against the police in the 1970’s to keep their leather bar, the Coleherne, open. We will visit Brompton cemetery, where two male lovers of long ago quietly arranged to be buried together, and nobody noticed. Finally, we will take a stroll down Wharfedale Street to the location of a now famous photo from the 1980sof a pretty policeman tempting gay men.
