This is a treasure hunt of pleasure and prudence. Once known as Fox Hall, Vauxhall was granted to the quintessentially queer king, Edward II, in the 1300s, the start of its queer history. On this treasure hunt, you will solve clues and answer questions to follow a trail that charts the transformation of Vauxhall through history. From a quiet rural village, Vauxhall was transformed to a destination defined by it's Pleasure Gardens, offering wealthy Victorians art, fashion, music and prostitution, through to the modern day, where often referred to as ‘Voho’, Vauxhall is a hub for London’s LGBTQ+ life.On this treasure hunt you’ll uncover unique stories of brick-wielding drag queens, a butcher-boy known by night as Princess Seraphina, and the recent struggle to save a building from onslaught of the developers, and assume its rightful place in queer history for future generations to enjoy.

Berlin has long been a centre for LGBTIQ communities in Europe. Frederick the Great, Prussia’s legendary 18th century monarch is widely believed to have been gay; sexologist Magnus Hirscheld pioneered advocacy for homosexual and transgender rights in the early 20th century; Marlene Dieterich cross-dressed on the city’s screens in the hedonistic ‘20s; and Klaus Wowereit, mayor of the city from 2001 until 2014, was openly and proudly gay.This 3-hour walking tour explores Berlin’s LGBTIQ scenes past and present, and, naturally, is open to all.Topics covered include the work of Magnus Hirschfeld, queer king Frederick the Great, persecution of homosexuals in Nazi Germany and homosexuality within the Nazi Party itself, the experience of LGBTIQ communities in East and West Berlin, and the queer scene in the hedonistic 1920s and in the 1990s as part of the burgeoning techno and club scene.

Explore world-famous, Schöneberg, once the central district of the sapphic Berlin, home of philosopher and war journalist Erika Mann, chronicled by painter Otto Dix and writer Christopher Isherwood.Discuss the queer community of Berlin and all the communities it intersects with by visiting Kreuzberg, where as far back as the 1600's, many waves of LGBTIQ and immigrant diasporas have come to determine "nobody flees without a reason".On this tour we accept anyone that considers themselves LGBTIQ, an ally, or who’s just plain interested. Everyone is welcome!
