  • The UK LGBT Archive records the the history and memories of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people living in the UK.

    It’s a virtual time-capsule, capturing the experiences of our time, and a chronicle of the achievements and challenges of previous centuries – the changing law, the amazing response to health epidemics, the newspapers and magazines that come and go, TV programmes, sports, lesbian, gay, bi and trans businesses, arts, music and theatre, events, pubs and clubs, and of course the amazing diversity of people who have had a part in our history.

    The project was launched in June 2011 and was originally called The LGBT History Project. It was re-launched as The UK LGBT Archive in December 2015.
