Queer Brighton Tour
Brighton has always attracted people with alternative sexualities and gender identities. Their stories give us insight into the surprising diversity of lives in the past, while many also made unique contributions to wider society and culture. The Piers & Queers 80-minute walking tour looks at some of the stories from Brighton’s past, focusing on the astonishing personalities of LGBT interest and their tales of achievement, challenge, bravery and infamy.
Meet: by West Pier, Upper Promenade, opposite Regency Square map
