Queer history is all around us. The building we walk past on the way to work might have witnessed the first meeting of a campaign group; the bus stop we use every day might be remembered fondly as the site of someone’s first kiss. But like many marginalised experiences, too often this history remains invisible.

On this walking tour the Hold It Up Collective  or Kit Heyam will take you on a tour of Leeds' queer history highlights. From Pride to squats, from 1840s court cases to 1990s raves, you'll see the city and its past in a new light.

Running time approx. 2 hours. Ticket holders meet at the The Bookish Type (77a Great George Street) 15 minutes before the walk starts.
