The Pink Sink


Notes

"In the war years, however, it was "the Pink Sink", a hub of the homosexual geography of wartime London. When the poet Louis MacNeice visited the place in 1940, he registered its unusual atmosphere. "The bar," he noted, "is noisy and crowded with officers in uniform, but all of a peculiar kind, shimmying their hips and speaking in shrill or velvety voices – 'My dear! My dear! My DEAR!'"
