The OHS’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) special interest group is pleased to be programming the 15th annual LGBTQ History and Archives conference, hosted by the London Metropolitan Archives. The conference, called Talking Back! will take place on Saturday December 2 from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
The day will explore powerful histories expressed through oral recordings, ways of collecting and sharing heritage in community settings and how marginalised histories can be brought into sharp focus through effective oral history practice. The conference costs £15 (£10 for concessions, including lunch. Please click here to book.
The first six months of the LGBTQ group have been busy, with the SIG growing steadily both in terms of members and activity. February’s LGBTQ history month saw many group members touring the country to display their research, host talks and workshops and generally spread the world about LGBTQ oral history.
That landscape is currently being mapped by the group and participation would be much appreciated to make this resource as comprehensive as possible. You can also keep up to date with the SIG via Facebook and Twitter.
