Poetry and Polari for LGBTQ+ History Month
Join us at our free workshop in celebration of LGBTQ+ History month in Southwark! In this casual evening session at the Southwark Heritage Centre and Walworth Library, we'll learn about the connections between Cockney Rhyming Slang and the historic gay slang of Polari. Using material from the archives and museum collections, including illustrations, objects and oral history, we'll create our own poetic collages and codes in recognition of the ingenuity, creativity and resilience of Southwark's historic LGBTQ+ communities. See you there!
