QUEER TOURS OF LONDON ‘A Mince Through Time’

Published on 27th September 2022

QUEER TOURS OF LONDON (‘A Mince Through Time’) exist to shine a light on London’s queer past and present whilst also looking to the future. The tours celebrate and remember the queer pioneers that paved a way for the liberations that we enjoy today, and acknowledge the work that still needs to happen. This brand new walking tour, commissioned by Team London Bridge, explores and celebrates untold and forgotten stories, voices, people and places from London Bridge’s rich queer heritage and identity. Delivered by Queer activists, performers and historians Dani Singer and Dan de la Motte, on behalf of the Queer Tours of London collective. BOOK YOUR FREE PLACE
