FUNDRAISER FOR AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL
This walk led by Richard Cohen, a Camden Guide and Amnesty member, takes in places in Fitzrovia, Bloomsbury and King's Cross which are part of Camden's rich heritage of sexual diversity.
You will visit pubs which were notorious watering holes for the Bohemian demimonde of the 1920s and 1930s, pass the vanguard of lesbian & gay theatre as well a bookshop which has been at the heart of the LGBT community since 1979.
You will see the homes of the writers and artists of the Bloomsbury Set who challenged Victorian codes of behaviour, and see the house where the great genius of polari Kenneth Williams was brought up. You will hear about how the LGBT community rallied together to respond to the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980s.
The walk ends at Camden Town Hall where the first Same Sex weddings were joyously celebrated.
Meet outside Goodge Street Station at 6:30 pm
