LGBTQ history at Gloucestershire Archives

Exploring LGBTQ history in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire

Between September 2013 and March 2014 Gloucestershire Archives explored the previously hidden histories of LGBTQ residents (and ex-residents) of Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire.

Using the link in the menu to your right, you can find out more about our pilot project to collect, preserve and share these powerful memories and stories.  You can also explore the two counties' LGBTQ histories, in our online exhibition.

If you would like to know more about our work in this area, or find out how you can help us with projects like this, please contact us.
