An Islington Watery Walk
Islington Pride - 50+ Years of LGBTQ History
Islington has a strong and well established LGBT+ community, with a long history of campaigning.
The walk includes Islington's significant LGBT "firsts" such as the UK's first gay mayor, MP, march and demonstration as well local characters such as Joe Orton, Derek Jarman and the extraordinary Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
This guided walk was originally developed for Clerkenwell and Islington's Tour Guide Association (CIGA) in partnership with Islington Heritage and funded by Islington's Pride, an Heritage Lottery Fund funded LGBT+archive project.
