In this talk, inspired by Robin Whitmore's illustrated map 'A Plan of the Royal Vauxhall Tavern and Environs', we will uncover the city's rich queer history and heritage and discover how it continues to evolve to this day. From the eighteenth century pleasure gardens of Vauxhall, to the queer club scene of the 80’s, right up to today’s transient takeovers – we will explore the importance of place, space and community in queer London.

Speakers include:

  • Neil Barlett (director, author and performer)
  • Lo Marshall (researcher in gender, sexuality and queerness)
  • Sadie Sinner (founder and curator of The Cocoa Butter Club)
  • Robin Whitmore (artist and researcher)

There will be a cafe-bar open throughout the event serving drinks and snacks.
