Wednesday 24th May, 6-8.30pm
TELLING TALES: Pitt Rivers Museum
Between the glass cabinets of the museum sit down for a conversation with someone with a story to tell. There will be a range of members of Oxford's queer community waiting to have conversations throughout the museum – just show up and book in to speak to one or more of these amazing people. The event is free but you need to book via Eventbrite here.
Wednesday 5th April, 6-8pm
CROWDSOURCING CABARET: Pitt Rivers Museum
Join us for an evening of sharing, celebrating and learning about our city's queer history in the amazing setting of the Pitt Rivers Museum. Whether you have been on the scene for years and want to share your memories, or are a new arrival looking to find out more – this is for you!
The legendary Dan Glass, of 'Queer Tours of London – a mince through time', will host the evening and help us build up a picture of what has gone before in our city.
Friday 24th February, 6pm onwards
PUB CRAWL THROUGH TIME
Discover your city’s queer community history – one drink at a time! We start our trail at the White Horse on Friars Entry - formerly the Gloucester Arms and a gay hangout in the 1950’s and 60s. Meet us here between 6-7.30pm. We will then set off on our tour of the city’s homosexual hostelries of yore before finishing up at the Jolly Farmers – Oxford’s current queer community pub - for last orders. The White Rabbit also serves great pizzas if you want to start the evening with some food.
PUB CRAWL ITINERARY
6-7.30pm: The White Rabbit on Friar's Entry (we are not making this up...). A gay / theatre hang out in the 50s and 60s. Does great pizzas.
7.45-8.45pm: The Wheatsheaf (down a wonderfully dark alley off the High St - venue of a much-loved women's night in the 80s)
9-10: Bill's Restaurant on St Michael's St (formerly the Oxford Lesbian & Gay Community Centre)
10.15-late: The All New Jolly Farmers (a gay pub since the early 1980s and still going strong today)
We shall have back issues of The Oxford Gayzette and the Oxfordshire Pink Times with us to give an insight into the queer life in these places back in the 80s and 90s. If you were drinking in these pubs back then you are even more welcome.
More events planned for April and May...more details coming soon.
