The histories of queer London, with its many cause célèbres and its reconstructions of identity and reform, are only partial accounts of the every-day experiences of queer identity across Britain.

Often en-mass, spatially considered paths, carved in realising identity were uprooted by local constabularies, and exposed across Britain; fracturing relationships and leaving queer men little resolve but to depart from their communities.
