LocalFound 9th Aug 2017
...Clerkenwell and Islington Guides' Association (CIGA) tour guides are once again leading their popular guided walk entitled Islington Pride – 50 Years of LGBT History.

The walks take palce on the anniversary of the day the Sexual Offences Act came into force(Thursday 27th July)and the day Joe Orton died (Wednesday 9th August). We will visit key sites in the life and death of Joe Orton and also highlight the many LGBT “firsts” and other developments that have taken place in Islington in the aftermath of the 1967 Act.

Orton's local pub, the gathering point for the UK's first gay rally and the former home of a member of the extraordinary Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are just a few of the venues featured on this fascinating walk.

These FREE walks have been generously funded by Islington Museum to complement an exhibition at the museum called 1967: Up Against It - Joe Orton, Criminal Acts and Islington, which runs 22 July - 21 October 2017.

Booking is essential.

Why don't you grow up a touch?
Damn I was too late to give this a negative vote! Just because the left wing media fetishises all things gay doesn't mean that most people do.
-223 (currently) for a free, guided walk, in our capital city? "Haters will hate". Especially the cowards behind keyboards.

This is a cracking deal although I'm not entirely certain booking is essential. OP - who is the picture of? Just looks like a bloke with the smallest mobile and highest ear. Is he a famous homosexual?

Name checks out
I did one of these walking tours in Manc. It was really good. Op, maybe edit to use the words 'walking tour'. The one I went on was really interesting and there was a free brew and piece of cake at the end.
Oh dear, lots of predictable borderline homophobic comments, almost hope some of your kids are gay, see how you feel about things then.
just like elections in the UK the intolerant are the first to the poll booths to get their boot in.

My boy is gay and neither him or me would call these comments homophobic.
You need to grow up a bit and stop playing the victim.

I disagree less so your comment, more so your intolerant yes, patronising tone.

Strange you feel that would be some kind of punishment, is that not in itself homophobic?
I imagine this would be an entertaining and interesting tour, shame it's gone cold. Where's Miles when you need him, perhaps he could warm it up a little. Anyhow , heat added .

Let’s say hello to my new comedy character – Camp David. Hello Camp David!

Camp David: Well, hello, Alan.
Alan: And err, what did you have for breakfast this morning?
Camp David: Oooh, mince!

Disappointing that you've had to put inverted commas around the word straight.
Is it that rare now?
