Rainbow-coloured band and two compass pointersLast September Bristol24/7 launched Talking LGBT+ Bristol – a groundbreaking project set to unearth, document and share LGBT+ life and history in Bristol with a wider audience.

The team at Bristol24/7 want to help others access and learn about Bristol’s LGBT+ heritage.

Over the last few months we have been unearthing stories and finding contributors from the Bristol LGBT+ community and beyond. We completed the first phase of filming in December 2017, with the second and third phases of filming to take place in spring this year. The final film will be shown on the big screen in Millennium Square as part of Bristol Pride. Bristol24/7 will make our Talking LGBT+ documentary available for schools to use as an educational tool and the whole project will also be added as a resource to Bristol Archives.

Bristol24/7 will be showing an exclusive short preview of the project so far. We are still looking for contributors and volunteers to be involved in this amazing project and will be on hand at M Shed to answer any questions.

Drop in on Bristol24/7 at the LGBT History Day at Bristol’s M Shed Museum. Free entry.
