The Heritage Lottery Funded, Pride in Our Past project reached completion in 2012 with its own exhibition at the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery and the formation of the award winning Plymouth LGBT Community Archive.
The Pride in Our Past project website created and hosted by Pride in Plymouth will be transformed over the next week or so providing further links to the rich content held in the archive and other relevant LGBT History sites, news and events.
Over the last several weeks, a great deal of cataloguing work has been taking place with the Plymouth LGBT Archive since it was deposited at the Plymouth and West Devon Record Office. The physical collection can now been searched – either in person or online at www.plymouth.gov.uk/archivescatalogue – where it is held under the collection number 3901.
In addition to this, throughout February’s LGBT history month, the archive will be presenting a number of highlights from the Oral History interviews on the community archive’s own website: http://plymlgbtarchive.org.uk/
These have been selected and collected around certain themes which particularly relate to the LGBT history of the city of Plymouth and lead up to Peter Tatchell’s visit and talk “Queer Britain: The struggle for LGBT human rights 1958 to 2012” which is taking place on the 6th March.
