As part of the two week Pride Festival in London, Proximity London has created Love Lived Here, a campaign to celebrate pioneers of the LGBT+ movement throughout British history.
Starting on 26 June, key blue plaques around London will be given a temporary rainbow makeover to acknowledge the individuals who lived there as part of the LGBT+ community, alongside their literary, scientific, economic or artistic achievements.
While their work has been marked as part of British history, their LGBT+ status may be lesser known, particularly in view of the less accepting times they lived in.
Plaques that have been changed include computer scientist Alan Turing, solider and poet Siegfried Sassoon and choreographer Sir Frederick Ashton.
