A map of LGBTQ histories
Oral history is one of the most exciting methods for recording, preserving, and celebrating the lives and experiences of LGBTQ people. For several decades numerous projects have sought to record the lives of our queer forbears. Many of these important collections, however, remain uncatalogued or held in in places unknown to most researchers.
The map of LGBTQ Oral Histories is a crowd-sourced initiative sponsored by the OHS LGBTQ Special Interest Group and the Queer Beyond London research project that seeks to identify, locate and map these important collections so that students, researchers and community members may have fuller access to our past.
Use this interactive map to find locations of LGBTQ oral history projects across the UK, and to add your own projects to the map! If the map does not appear in the window below, you can find it at https://www.historypin.org/en/lgbtq-oral-history
