Up The Arts: Behind-the-scenes tours of Parliament's LGBTQ+ past

It's perhaps one of the most iconic building in the country.  It's steeped in history and today acts as the centre of Government. But, for many within the LGBT community it's also a divisive place - where their liberty and freedom has both been snatched from them and given back over the course of history.  Now a special tour opens as part of LGBT History month which will take you through the corridors of this fascinating building and explore the role leaders, legislators, activists, lobbyists and monarchs played in our LGBT past.  The narrative explores the struggle for civil rights from universal condemnation and victimisation to the relative freedoms and rights enjoyed by some today.We met up with Emma Stevenson, the Education and Engagement Campaigns Manager and co-chair of ParliOUT, and Penny McMahon, outreach archivist for the Parliamentary archives to talk about the tours, and some of the darker events and more promising campaigns in Parliament's LGBQT+ history.Book your tickets at: https://www.parliament.uk/visiting/visiting-and-tours/tours-of-parliament/pride-lgbt-history-tours/Welcome to Up The Arts, a weekly podcast for those proud to be be involved in theatre, music, art and literature in the LGBTQ+ world!
