VENUE: Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, Museum Lab, Royal Pavilion Gardens, Brighton, BN1 1EE
Discover more about Brighton’s LGBTQ history with the team from Queer Beyond London. Queer Beyond London is a collaboration between Birkbeck College, University of London and Leeds Beckett University, in partnership with the Raphael Samuel History Centre, to research histories of LGBTQ identities and communities in Brighton, Manchester, Leeds and Plymouth from the 1960s to the present. Come and share your experiences of themes including family and kinship, migration and movement, activism and community building, and the uses of history.
Queer Beyond London is the first comparative project to research the impact of locality on queer histories and experiences outside the capital. It considers the local significance of famous LGBTQ landmarks, community networks, migration, gentrification and the intersection of sexual, religious, ethnic, class and gender identities and identifications. It will also gather new interviews relating to the impact of these issues on local LGBTQ communities.
Suitable for adults and young people. We welcome a mix of people across a range of ages, genders and sexual identities, ethnic and religious backgrounds interested in Brighton’s LGBTQ past.
