Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer+ (LGBTQ+) people have always been part of the fabric of London yet our histories have been marginalised. Speak Out is a call to action to put LGBTQ+ lives and experience back into the historical record.
Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Speak Out London volunteers assisted by London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) have created a community archive using oral histories and memorabilia to complement and, where necessary, challenge more formal collections held at LMA.
We have done this by collecting oral histories and digitising new and existing collections. This website presents a selection of this newly available material. Our work continues so if you feel that this website is missing something or that you would like to be involved… Speak Out!
