June 15: The Heritage Lottery Fund agreed a grant of just over £20,000 to OutStories Bristol to fund Bristol’s first ever exhibition of LGBT history. The exhibition will show at M Shed, Bristol’s major new museum, for the whole of February 2013 coinciding with LGBT History Month. Bristol Museum Service and Bristol Record Office are committed to the project, with further support in-kind to the value of nearly £70,000.
Three Bristol senior schools will be involved in the exhibition, complementing work already underway as part of the Stonewall Education Champions project.
The M Shed exhibition will be followed by a smaller version of the exhibition which will be on display at Public Libraries in Bath, Yate and Weston-super-Mare.
OutStories Bristol is seeking volunteers to work on all aspects of the project. Please contact us if you want to be involved.
