Dan Glass’s new book Queer Footprints: A Guide to Uncovering London’s Fierce History will be presented at Design Museum Brussels on 7 September.
This groundbreaking guide will take you through the city streets to uncover the scandalous, hilarious and empowering events of London’s queerstory. Follow in the footsteps of veteran activists, such as those who marched in London’s first Pride parade in 1972 or witnessed the 1999 bombing of the Admiral Duncan pub in Soho. Accompanied by a chorus of voices both iconic and unsung legends of the movement, readers can walk through parts of East, West, South and North London, dipping into beautifully illustrated maps and extraordinary tales of LGBTQIA+ solidarity, protest and pride.
Dan Glass is an ‘Aids Coalition to Unleash Power’ (ACT UP) healthcare and human rights activist, performer, presenter, writer and author of United Queerdom. Dan has been recognized as ‘Activist of the Year’ with the Sexual Freedom Awards and was announced a ‘BBC Greater Londoner’ for founding Queer Tours of London – A Mince Through Time. Dan recently founded self-defense empowerment program Bender Defenders and Queer Night Pride to confront rising hate crime.
This book presentation is organized in the framework of the exhibition Brussels Queer Graphics in collaboration with Forbidden Colours. The book will also be available to purchase at the shop on the evening.
