The Oscar Wilde Temple by artists McDermott & McGough.

Studio Voltaire, 1a Nelsons Row, London SW4.

A church dedicated to the Irish poet and playwright is now open and free to the public for six months, until March 31, 2019 – “to all faiths and non–believers alike”.

They say:

Individuals and families will be welcomed into The Oscar Wilde Temple for private reflection as well as to celebrate LGBTQ+ marriages, naming ceremonies, vow renewals, memorials and markings of other important occasions….

In fairness.
