Britain’s Great Gay Buildings this Saturday (Saturday 24th June 2017), on Channel 4 should be a good watch!

In Britain’s Great Gay Buildings, presented by Stephen Fry, seven famous gay faces champion the buildings that have helped define Britain’s gay history, revealing the groundbreaking events that happened there and the extraordinary people who lived and worked at these key historical sites. The Reverend Richard Cole revisits Heaven Nightclub, to reveal its hedonistic past. Mary Portas visits Shibden Hall, in Yorkshire, to discover the secret diaries of a Yorkshire heiress. Craig Revel Horwood explores Britain’s drag scene at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. Simon Callow tells the story of Oscar Wilde’s downfall at the Old Bailey. Rikki Beadle Blair visits the Theatre Royal Haymarket, to discover how the British public showed their support for Sir John Gielgud after his arrest for cottaging. Liz Carr travels to Bletchley Park, which fostered one of Britain’s greatest scientists, Alan Turing. And Baron Waheed Alli tells the story of the Houses of Parliament’s recent battle for gay rights.

I know this is a bit sad! But I’ve just come up with a new idea… and that’s taken photos of every red telephone box, I cycle or walk past…

Here is a very small collection of the photos, I’ve taken so far… More can be found @ www.flickr.com/photos/gsvalentine/albums/72157681831924433.
