Brighton Pink Plaques, your convenient personal tour guide to Brighton’s LGBT past (and present), can help you get the most out of LGBT History Month this February with its informative and entertaining history behind the locations in and around LGBT Brighton.
Black Tablet’s freshly updated app, Brighton Pink Plaques V1.3, has just gone live on the App Store and has now been updated to take advantage of iOS6, the iPhone 5 and latest iPod touch.
Stephen Watson, developer behind the app, said:
“This latest update allows users of the latest Apple products to benefit from more room for the app’s maps, plaque descriptions and images on the new larger screen. What is also extra special this month is that we are cutting 60% off the price for the duration of LGBT History Month allowing visitors to Brighton to get even more out of their visit at this celebratory time.”
Brighton Pink Plaques isn’t only a treat for anyone interested in the LGBT history but is full of delightful stories of excitement, subterfuge, fun, protest and love – providing an affordable and rewarding way to enrich your experience of this vibrant city.
The information for some plaques may simply be factual, but many have intriguing and frequently surprising and occasionally hilarious anecdotes about the lives of the city’s famous residents and visitors and the places at which they stayed.
Brighton Pink Plaques is packed with stories, photos and facts from the Walkie Talkie tours of Brighton-based author and local historian Rose Collis. Since 1985, her features, interviews and reviews have appeared in over 30 publications on both sides of the Atlantic, including The Mail On Sunday, The Independent, The Times, TV Times, The Bookseller, Time Out, City Limits and Tribune.
Her tours have featured in a number of festivals and annual events, including:
• The Brighton Fringe Festival
• Brighton & Hove Open Door 2009 & 2010
• Winter Pride
• The Word
• Brighton Libraries’ series of ‘Encyclopaedic Knowledge’ local history events in 2010
• Events for ‘JourneyOn’ and VisitBrighton.com
