"Can you help us unlock" image Mapping LGBT+ Bristol is a collaboration between Bristol University’s Know Your Bristol project, Bristol City Council’s Know Your Place website, and OutStories Bristol. The project will create a permanent digital archive of the LGBT+ history of the Bristol region.

Activities include:

  • Gathering the stories of LGBT+ people through oral interviews.
  • Research in the Bristol Record Office, libraries and other local archives.
  • Collating and storing the digital material we collect and uploading it to websites.
  • Creating a custom-made mobile app and a user-friendly interface embedded in OutStories’ own website.

Read more about the project here.

Activities are co-ordinated at monthly meetings, usually the 2nd Tuesday of each month. The next meeting is:

Tuesday 12th January 2016,  5:30pm to 7pm

University of Bristol Graduate School of Education, Room 3.18,  35 Berkeley Square, Bristol, BS8 1JA
(venue confirmed)

The room is wheelchair accessible with a lift from the ground floor.

These monthly meetings are primarily intended to co-ordinate the activities of the smaller teams of people working on each aspect of the project. Everyone is welcome. For further information, get in touch via our contact form.
