The stories are presented as a map on this website and also on the Know Your Place website provided by Bristol City Council and neighbouring local authorities. The map is also available as a mobile app (Google Play and iTunes).

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.

Activities are co-ordinated at monthly meetings, usually the second Monday of each month. Everyone is welcome. For further information, get in touch via our contact form.
