QUEER FOOTPRINTS: A GUIDE TO UNCOVERING LONDON’S FIERCE HISTORY BY DAN GLASS
Join us for the presentation Queer Footprints: A Guide to Uncovering London’s Fierce History, a new book by Dan Glass.
This groundbreaking guide will take you through the city streets to uncover the scandalous, hilarious and empowering events of London’s queerstory. Follow in the footsteps of veteran activists, such as those who marched in London’s first Pride parade in 1972 or witnessed the 1999 bombing of the Admiral Duncan pub in Soho. Accompanied by a chorus of voices both iconic and unsung legends of the movement, readers can walk through parts of East, West, South and North London, dipping into beautifully illustrated maps and extraordinary tales of LGBTQIA+ solidarity, protest and pride.
