First Rumours: A new play about Peter Tatchell


First Rumours is a new play by People’s History Museum award winning Playwright in Residence Stephen M Hornby. The play focusses on Tatchell’s contested candidacy for the Labour Party in London in the early 1980s, which saw the biggest voter swing in modern political history following an extremely homophobic campaign.

There will be a free rehearsed reading of the play at People’s History Museum, followed by a Q&A with Peter Tatchell, facilitated by LGBT activist and historian Paul Fairweather.

Part of OUTing the Past, the national festival of LGBT history.
