Happy Birthday Royal Vauxhall Tavern

Built in 1863, this legendary London pub is 150 years young.

Even before the legalization of homosexuality, the Royal Vauxhall Tavern was infamous as a gay bar and drag performance venue. How far back does its queer identity and its reputation for drag shows go? An historical investigation hosted by Rupert Smith with guests Maisie Trollette, Neil Bartlett and Stuart Feather.
