Hide & Seek: A Queer Tour of Bloomsbury

Location

Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Alumni | Public | Academic | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

Join members of qUCL and Out@UCL for an evening saunter through the streets of Bloomsbury. From writers and artists to cruisers and boozers, this event will throw light on the peoples and places that have contributed to the area's queer histories. Beginning with an opening drinks reception and informal talk in UCL’s South Cloisters—in the shadow of Jeremy Bentham, an early advocate for homosexual law reform—participants will be encouraged to form impromptu groups, issued with route maps, and set off on a whistle-stop tour of the neighbourhood’s diverse LGBTQ+ heritage. Volunteer pop-up ‘guides’ will be on hand to recount stories connected with specific locations along the way. This event is timed to coincide with LGBT History Month 2018, the theme of which is ‘Geography: Mapping the World’.
