Volunteer Duties: Volunteers wanted to conduct oral history interviews, and transcribe and edit results (transcription summary with verbatim quotes only).

Rainbow Pilgrims is a landmark project that discovers the hidden history of LGBTQI migrants in the UK past and present. This initiative explores the interconnection between faith, sexuality, gender and ethnicity using oral history recording (audio and a/v), photography and other media.

We intend to record and process 30 interviews by the end of summer 2017; for those who’d like to continue we will have a variety of ‘skills-sharing’ opportunities from autumn 2017 in order to create an exhibition, run a symposium and a variety of pop-up events across Britain and finally preparing the collection for deposit at the London Metropolitan Archives.

We are an inclusive project and everyone is welcome.
