Wednesday 22 June
Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, EC2M 4QH.
Bishopsgate Institute is an independent library and cultural institution holding special collections on the history of London, labour, free thought and co-operation. We have recently acquired a number of globally significant LGBTQ collections, including the Lesbian and Gay Newsmedia Archive and the organisational archives of Stonewall and Outrage. Our collections inspire a lively courses and events programme as well as being freely accessible to independent researchers.
Thursday 23 June
Queer London Research Forum at the University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, W1B 2HW.
The Queer London Research Forum (QLRF), based at the University of Westminster, was established in September 2013. Its aim is to facilitate interdisciplinary discussion on various aspects of queer London, c.1850-present. By bringing together academics, practitioners, students and those with an interest in queer issues more generally, we hope to encourage dialogue and debate about the range of London’s queer lives and experiences.
Friday 24 June
London Metropolitan Archives, 40, Northampton Road, EC1R 0HB www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/lma
London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) is the largest local authority archive in the UK and one of the largest in Europe. The collections date from 1067 to the present day. LMA houses a number of significant queer collections and has run an influential and ground breaking LGBTQ History and Archives conference since 2003, attracting UK based and international speakers and delegates. LMA is currently working with queer communities through an oral history project called Speak Out London – Diversity City.
There will be a chance to collect together for a post conference drink on Friday 24 June.
