Mapping LGBT+ Bristol – private view / pre-launch party

Wednesday 6th July 2016,   5.30-7.30pm
Old Market Assembly,  25 West Street,  Old Market,  Bristol,  BS2 0DF
Map and how to get there

We’re officially launching the map and mobile app at Bristol Pride Day on Saturday 9th July. Before that we’re hosting a sneak preview – a private view – to celebrate the project and allow you to explore and contribute to the map before anyone else.

Do you have photos, documents, objects or stories of relevance to Bristol’s LGBT+ past? Bring them along!
We’ll have a mobile digitisation station set up so you can create high quality copies of your memorabilia and upload it to the map. 

If you just want to play, we’ll have the map displayed on a big screen and have tablets and devices pre-loaded so you can explore the content. And of course the team will be on hand to chat about the project.

Drinks and nibbles will be available for those that arrive early.

This event is free but places are limited – please book via Eventbrite.

*  Since October 2015, OutStories Bristol, University of Bristol, Bristol Record Office and Bristol City Council have been working together to create an LGBT+ history map layer on the Council’s interactive Know Your Place site. We’ve also been working on embedding this map on OutStories’ own website and on a custom mobile app that will allow users to explore the map on the move.

Revealing Stories display panelWe are delighted to announce that our guest for LGBT History Month, Stuart Milk of the Harvey Milk Foundation, will be at UWE on Monday (Feb. 15th) to formally open our latest traveling incarnation of the Revealing Stories exhibition.

The exhibition will be at UWE’s Frenchay Campus Library from Feb 15th to 29th. Stuart will be at the Library at 1:00pm on Monday for the formal opening ceremony.

Revealing Stories was first created for M Shed in 2013. It was very popular there, and was mentioned in Parliament by Stephen Williams, MP. It was later visited by Maria Miller, MP, who was in the process of guiding the same-sex marriage bill through Parliament at the time. The exhibition has been available for travel to venues in the South West since then.

Stuart Milk is the nephew of Harvey Milk, and one of the USA’s top LGBT rights activists. Stuart will be undertaking a number of events in Bristol as part of our role as South-West hub for the 2016 National festival of LGBT History. These include a talk about his uncle at Bristol University on the evening of Wednesday 17th, the launch of our events at M Shed on the evening of Friday 19th, and a talk at M Shed on Saturday 20th.

Clifton Hill House, Bristol

Clifton Hill House (rear)

Clifton Hill House was for many  years the home of John Addington Symonds, one of Victorian Britain’s greatest scholar-writers and an early advocate of homosexual rights. He loved the garden and wrote extensively about it.

Today the house is owned by the University of Bristol and the Clifton Hill House Garden Project has been awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to recreate the historic garden, incorporating elements that reflect its fascinating history.

To celebrate and give thanks to their supporters they are having an open garden on Saturday 20th February.  OutStories Bristol’s volunteers are specially invited – we supported their funding application.

This will be a free event to allow local community groups and interested members of the public to come along and find out more about their plans, see what’s been done so far, and enjoy the garden in its springtime glory.

Saturday 20th February 2016,  11am to 3pm

Revealing Stories: lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans Lives in the Bristol region from c.1940

OutStories Bristol’s highly successful ‘Revealing Stories’ exhibition is on display in the foyer of UWE Frenchay campus library from the 15th to the 29th February. The exhibition was originally displayed at Bristol’s M Shed during February/March 2013.

'Revealing Stories' in UWE library

‘Revealing Stories’ at Frenchay campus library

The exhibition is based on archival records and oral history interviews with lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people associated with Bristol and the surrounding area. Focusing on living memory (c. 1940s to the present) it tells how people fought to shape and control their own lives. It is the story of those who witnessed these changes and helped to make history.

Another chance if you missed it at M Shed! The exhibition is open to visitors.

Note: this display comprises the vertical text panels only; it doesn’t include any of the objects that were in display cases at M Shed.

Jacq ApplebeeContinuing our list of headline speakers for the headline speakers for the 2016 National Festival of LGBT History, we are delighted to welcome Jacq Applebee. Jacq is the co-founder of the support and social group, Bi’s of Colour. They are a bisexual, nonbinary activist, writer and poet. They have written zines and spoken at numerous events on subjects as diverse as Blackout Poetry to Mental Health for Black LGBT people.

Jacq was #58 on this year’s Independent Rainbow List. Their talk will be on the Saturday of the Festival.

Bisexual people who identify as Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic, are a minority within a minority. But was it always this way? How can we shape our present lives so that we are not continually erased from existence, both inside and out of the LGBT community. How does racism, biphobia and violence affect us? What are our chances of having a brighter future? Explore these questions through poetry, stories and discussion.

sarah-smallContinuing the posts about our headline speakers for the 2016 National Festival of LGBT History, we have a key figure in the UK’s trans community.

Sarah Savage was one of the stars of the TV series, My Transsexual Summer, which was instrumental in paving the way for broad acceptance of trans people in British society.

Since then Sarah has gone on to become one of the founders of Brighton’s Trans Pride, an event that has grown exponentially over the first few years of its life.

Last year Sarah co-wrote a children’s book, Are You A Boy or Are You A Girl?. This tells the story of Tiny, a young person whose gender is never mentioned, and who feels free to play in all sorts of ways, free of gender stereotypes.

Sarah will be speaking as part of the full day of events at M Shed on Saturday Feb. 20th.

Stuart Milk, photo by Brook PiferContinuing the posts about our headline speakers for the 2016 National Festival of LGBT History, we are delighted to have a guest all the way from the USA.

Stuart Milk is a global LGBT human rights activist and political speaker. He’s also the nephew of the late US civil rights campaigner Harvey Milk. Stuart’s Uncle Harvey was the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California, and was responsible for passing a gay rights ruling for the city of San Francisco in 1978. In that same year, Harvey was assassinated by Dan White, who was also serving in public office.

Stuart, who says that his uncle’s assassination destroyed the ‘closet door’ and inspired him to come out, is the co-founder and president of the Harvey Milk Foundation. Travelling the world speaking on public policy and civil rights issues, he’s received numerous international awards for his work.

Stuart will be in Bristol for several days and has a packed schedule of meetings, public events and media appearances. In particular he will be doing the following:

Recently Stuart talked to Cheryl Morgan for Shoutout Radio. You can listen to the broadcast here.
