LGBT History in Islington
Islington Museum and Islington’s Pride are celebrating the wonderful and heroic LGBT+ residents of Islington in the exhibition, ‘Making the Invisible Visible’.
Discover more about the interesting lives of local Islington LGBT legends such as Peter Wildeblood (a journalist, novelist, playwright and television producer), Yvonne Sinclair (an activist, co-ordinator of the TV/TS Group), Duncan Irvine (co-owner, along with Martin Mason, of LGBT+ venue Central Station) and Lisa Power (LGBT+ activist and co-founder of Stonewall).
You can learn about their stories, and the stories of many, many more for free at the exhibition running at Islington Museum until 30 March.
