Welcome to the Plymouth LGBT History Archive

Plymouth LGBT history archiveThe Plymouth LGBT History Archive has been born out of the Pride in Our Past project funded by a Heritage Lottery grant received in 2011. A key aim of the project is the creation of a permanent virtual and physical archive that charts the city’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender history.

This site will become the central hub of the LGBT  archive connecting pictures and video shared via Flickr and other networks, we will store, edit, transcribe and share audio files collected.

The primary navigation of the archive is based on the themes of the Pride in Our Past exhibition that was on show at the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery between 28th April and 30th June 2012.

Utilising established public networks such as WordPress and Flickr enables more people to contribute and be part of this exciting and important archive, whilst minimising cost and technical expertise for future custodians of the ‘permanent archive’.

Please contact us if you have a story to tell, pictures to share, or if you would like to arrange an informal chat to find out how you can contribute to this archive.

or call 07833010712

We can digitise your photos, negatives, slides, and film footage preserving them for future generations.

To build an archive of Plymouth’s LGBT history today and also its history of tomorrow we need you to share your stories.

We would like to hear from you:

  • Perhaps you’re a member of the LGBT community who’s lived in Plymouth all your life?
  • On the other hand, perhaps you’ve moved into the area and want to tell us what drew you here?
  • Maybe you were born in Plymouth but have moved away or you have lived or studied in Plymouth at some point in your life. We would love to hear about your time in Plymouth.
  • Perhaps you’re not part of the LGBT community but someone in your life is? If so, your story can be just as relevant and interesting as we build up a picture of life in Plymouth.
