Pride Of Place

Online exhibition and draft guidance for Historic England on identity and place.

Robert was commissioned to provide heritage input into Historic England’s Pride of Place project to identify and celebrate LGBTQ heritage places and the people associated with them such as Anne Lister and Edward Carpenter. He conducted research, co-wrote an online exhibition and prepared draft guidance to local authorities to help with identifying sites. He has also provided evidence to campaigns to save key LBTQ London venues such as the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, The Yard in Soho and to secure the re-provision of club space at the Joiners Arms in Tower Hamlets.
