Tour Highlights

Embark on the most fabulous of journeys and discover Edinburgh’s rich queer history straight (pun intended) from the early mediaeval era to present day and looking forward. Learn about queer royalty, poets, doctors, sex workers, activists, drag queens and kings, football players and more…there’s even a spy! Through these stories and more we’ll travel together through history and give life to the history of queer rights and love right up to the present.
