Queer History Walk round Aberystwyth
Discover the queer history of Aberystwyth on this easy two-hour walk. We’ll be exploring the town’s alleyways and buildings where LGBTQ+ people contributed to some historic moments.
On the way we will be listening to stories about LGBTQ+ people from the 1860s to the 1990s. There will be poetry from winners of Bardic prizes, a singalong to sea shanty Lesberados outside the old lesbian nightclub Wrecked. We’ll also hear about historian John Davies who came out as bisexual at Cardiff Pride in 2012 and discuss the scandal of the 1950s - was Principal Goronwy Rees of the University really a Soviet spy and homosexual? There’ll be more surprises on the way. You may even have your own story to tell. Organised by Queer Tales from Wales, led by Jane Hoy.
Meeting Point: The Bank Vault, 1 New St, Aberystwyth SY23 2AT
Tickets £8 / £5
