Presented by Tom Marshman
Returning for the ‘Camden Roar’ festival after a hugely successful 2017 run, Kings Cross (REMIX) uncovers the hidden histories of LGBTQ communities in London during the 1980s. Tom Marshman excavates those histories through memories of the Kings Cross area – which has undergone radical change since its day as a hub of LGBTQ communities, bars and culture.
Woven together from the stories of people who experienced it first-hand, Tom’s show celebrates a raucous, riotous time in the life of central London where sexuality was for exploring, HIV was causing tragedy, and rights were to be fought for.
