Bishopsgate Institute has been documenting the history and lives of the LGBTQ+ Community in the UK since 2011, when it became home to the Lesbian and Gay Newsmedia Archive; a national collection of over 300,000 press cuttings from the straight press covering all aspects of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer experience from the late nineteenth century to the present.

It now also holds the archive collections of organisations such as Stonewall, Switchboard, GMFA: The Gay Men's Health Charity, Outrage!, and the UK Leather Archive, along with the records of various individuals including Paris Lees & Sue Sanders/Schools Out/LGBT History Month.

We celebrate LGBT History Month with this talk by Stef Dickers, Special Collections and Archives Manager at the Bishopsgate Institute, who will delve into the amazing stories, experiences and vibrancy behind the rich LGBTQ+ collections held by the Bishopsgate Library.
