We have been working with the Plymouth LGBT Archive assisting with the video editing and sharing of a selection of the oral histories collected as part of the Pride in Our Past Project that came to a close in 2012. The project website created and hosted by Pride in Plymouth has been recycled to give a retrospective view of the project and exhibition.
One example of this is a retrospective view of the exhibition published as an e-magazine on issuu.com (Best Viewed in Full Screen Mode).
The new site also presents content from the Plymouth LGBT Archive in different formats, combined with links to local history, other community archives and national LGBT history archive and projects.
The revamped site can be viewed at: http://lgbt-history.prideinplymouth.org.uk/
The first of a collection of oral histories being released by the Plymouth LGBT Archive throughout LGBT History Month 2013 has been published on YouTube where we have mixed recorded memories of the Lockyer Tavern with some images.
