At HEAVEN, the world's most famous gay venue
Heaven, The Arches, Villiers St, Charing Cross, London WC2N 6NG
Ticket price includes free entry to G-A-Y after the performance
Part of the Pride in London Festival
28 June 1969 is the most important day in LGBT+ history. On that day, a glorious assembly of Stonewall Warriors – rent boys, butch lesbians and drag queens – fought back when police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. They started a riot that lasted three nights and kick-started the fight for LGBT+ rights around the world. But the story didn’t all start in 1969...
This musical and dramatic celebration will take you back to 1969, and through many other eras, where more Warriors left behind touching testimonies of same-sex love. The Fourth Choir will bring hidden LGBT+ histories to life, with hauntingly beautiful music by composers such as 12th century nun Hildegarde of Bingen, and 20th century composers Benjamin Britten, jazz legend Billy Strayhorn, and Rufus Wainwright. Extraordinary, real-life stories – of a woman put on trial in 18th century Germany for marrying another woman, history’s most famous bisexual love triangle, a composer who liked to wear drag, and the story of an early HIV survivor – will be retold by actors.
After the performance, stay and party at G-A-Y and make the our Warriors proud of all that they achieved!
