AN evening of smart talk, wise words and music in celebration of London's queer history will mark the culmination of the inaugural Write Queer London international writing competition at the Museum of London tonight (Thursday).

What if Hadrian and Antinous had had a civil partnership in ancient Cheapside? Was there a thriving scene of African sailors and Indian lascars down at the docks in the 18th century?

There will be entertainment from Found in Translation, an international collective of gay poets, performers and playwrights from Bermuda, South Africa, France, Venezuela and Canada.
