LGBT history

Robin Warren, a photographer, aged 42, of Maidenhead, was murdered outside a public lavatory in 1980. Six youths were charged. They had gone queer bashing. The cause of death was a severe cut and blood loss by a broken bottle. It was a savage attack. In January 1981 at Reading Crown Court four of the six were convicted of the killing: two of murder and two of manslaughter. A fifth youth was convicted of assault.

The activist and former politician Robert Hayward went to school in Maidenhead.

"lgbt maidenhead is a new community group set up to represent, organise and engage the lesbian, gay, bi and trans residents of Maidenhead. We aim to organise community events and activities, campaign on lgbt issues as well as encourage lgbt involvement in local democracy."[1]
