About the event
How do you fancy a glass of Mother’s Ruin at the Widow at Masquerade? Who are those shadowy figures on Shadwell stairs? Who was the ‘female husband’ and how did they reach their untimely end?
These are just some of the history researched by Sacha Coward and Sheldon K. Goodman, tour guides and LGBQT+ historians.
After a successful debut in 2021, pay an online visit to the banks of the River Thames to discover queer history aplenty, from the Brunel Museum, a Victorian pub marooned amidst post-war housing to the wharves around London Bridge: there’s far more to London’s LGBTQ history than Soho!
