Learn about Queer Public History projects in London
Queer History surrounds us. Mass media, exhibitions, historic sites, online blogs and journalism are all key sites for making queer history accessible to the widest public. Join us at Goldsmiths where guests from LGBTQ and heritage organisations from across London describe the diverse ways and projects in which Queer History is brought to and engages the wider public.
The Queer History Fair includes stalls with representatives from:
* The Victoria and Albert Museum, which launched the first permanent LGBTQ tour at a national museum
* The Bishopsgate Institute, home of the Lesbian and Gay Newsmedia Archive and one of the most important LGBTQ archives in the country
* Goldsmiths Students' Union, who plan to hold a series of events for this year's LGBTQ History Month in February
* The National Archives, which has created innovative public history events like the recreation of the 1930s Caravan Club based on police records in its archive
* The London Metropolitan Archives, home to the rukus! Black LGBTQ Archive and the community-based queer history project Speakout London Diversity City
