Islington has a rich LGBTQ+ history with many key events taking place in the borough and important organisations that have called Islington home. As part of LGBT History Month this year, and in partnership with Islington’s Pride Archive project, we look back at 10 years of exhibitions created by Islington Heritage that explores the considerable importance of LGBTQ+ to the borough.
For a limited period, online versions of our classic exhibitions, together with posters and photos of the exhibits (where available), can be enjoyed and celebrated for one more time!
