    Ric was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable about the people and places that are an essential part of Brighton's LGBTQ history. Moving, inspirational and fascinating exploration of the real-life characters involved in shaping the vibrant, relaxed, progressive, bohemian city it is today. Highly recommended for anyone - none of us was LGBTQ in our group - with an interest in the kind of history that schools in 21st century Britain ought to be teaching, but singularly fail to.
