There were queers. There have always been queers. We have always been here. And, as some of the most celebrated LGBTQ+ performers of our present gather to celebrate the gays gone by, it’s nice to think that we too are making a new chapter of historyChristian Adore
Every year, the Queen's House plays host to something a little... different.
Fierce Queens takes place every LGBTQ+ History Month, but we wanted to share the spirit of the event every day of the year.
And so, without further ado, we're proud to present Fierce Royals, a brand new LGBTQ+ audio guide to the Queen's House!
How does it work?
Queer historian and performer Christian Adore leads listeners on a personal audio tour of the Queen's House, sharing just some of the "deliciously gay stories" contained within its galleries.
Along the way, he'll introduce the performers and artists that make Fierce Queens a night to treasure, allowing them to share their own experiences of representation and inclusivity in the historic space.
Let's step out and be our real selves in public. Not just relegated to designated queer spaces, but everywhere in the world, all the time – even in a place like this!Adam All
We have co-produced this audio tour with members of the LGBTQ+ community, who have chosen to use the term 'queer' as part of the tour.
Queer is, as charity Stonewall points out, "a term used by those wanting to reject specific labels of romantic orientation, sexual orientation and/or gender identity. It can also be a way of rejecting the perceived norms of the LGBT community (racism, sizeism, ableism etc). Although some LGBT people view the word as a slur, it was reclaimed in the late 80s by the queer community who have embraced it."
