York’s Alternative History

There are over seventy blue plaques around York commemorating famous people or events. To celebrate York LGBT History Month 2017, we invite you to create your own rainbow plaques to mark places of personal and/or political significance to LGBT history. Drop into Explore York between 13:00 and 15:00 to make your own removeable cardboard plaque. After 15:00, we’ll distribute them around the city. If you arrive after 15:00, we’ll leave contact details at Explore so you can find out how to join us en route. If you can’t make it, please feel free to email us in advance and we’ll create your plaque!

Accessibility: baby-changing; gender-neutral toilets; hearing loop; wheelchair access.
