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 Friday 11 April to mid May. The exhibition was originally displayed at Bristol’s M Shed during LGBT history month (February) in 2013 and extended for another two weeks due to popular demand.

‘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.
