Lancashire LGBT were very fortunate to welcome @queerbritain and @auntnell_ to Lancashire on Saturday, for their first workshop on LGBTQ+ oral histories!

Here is what the project is all about: “The UK’s queer history is endangered. Unheard stories are held by diverse LGBTQ+ people who often feel excluded from museums and society. This project will increase recognition of oral histories as valuable and impactful research practice and resources – focussing on LGBTQ+ histories – and further reduce barriers against full inclusion of queer heritage in the traditional GLAM sector. Through active participation of underrepresented groups, we will disrupt traditional ideas of knowledge and heritage, empower people to see their stories as an essential part of history, and produce a high-profile podcast series that will democratise and diversify history.”

We would like to thank everyone who attended, for sharing their beautiful and moving stories about LGBTQ+ history in Lancashire, and to @lancsarchives and @harris_museum for hosting us, and @rainbownoirmcr for joining us! We cannot wait to share the results of this amazing project!
