Artist Ian Giles and Open Ramble East are organising walks with LGBTQI+ people throughout the East of England during 2019 as part of East CVAN’s New Geographies. The rambling walks will move from urban centres out in to more rural spaces. They are an opportunity for LGBTQI+ individuals to socialise and collectively claim space. After each walk there will be a social event with food and music. As part of his research Ian has been meeting with members of the Gay Outdoor Club a membership led walking group founded in the 1970s. He has also been exploring queer sites and histories across the East.
