About the Tour

Counterculture center and benchmark for the activities of the LGTBI community. SOHO represents the revolution of the modern era reinventing the nude in theaters and the first legacy of the communist manifesto.

  • We begin with the Opium War in Chinatown , going through the misadventures of the most womanizing English king in the origins of this ancient hunting ground. By the early 20th century there was a mix of restaurants of foreign origin, a hotspot for intellectuals, writers and artists.
  • We will pass by the famous Red Lion where Marx and Engels met to change the course of history.
  • We will tell the anecdotes of the famous Windmill Theater that opened a stage in Burlesque, bypassing the censorship of the moment.
  • We will walk the streets of the most famous Gay neighborhood in the world remembering the King of SOHO, Paul Raymond, through the clubs that are still open.
  • We will talk about the rise of the Sex Shops to the decline of the Night Clubs, in an area that survived one of the harshest cholera pandemics, thanks to Dr. Jhon Snow.
  • The Rolling Stones or Jimi Hendrix will accompany us on this adventure in the heart of London, through the streets of the famous Carnaby Street, a symbol of the 70s .
  • We will finish in the temple that launched the acclaimed Beatles to fame: The Palladium Theatre, very close to Oxford Circus , where we will put the icing on the cake of our Tour.
