Be part of history. Share your Open Letter
Throughout history, the experiences of LGBTQ+ people have often been erased, overlooked or marginalised, leaving a gap in our national story. Queer Britain wants to change this so that future generations can see themselves represented in history.
With the support of Levi’s® and Post Office, Queer Britain is inviting members of the LGBTQ+ community to share an open letter with the museum. The letters will live in Queer Britain’s ever-growing archive and will help to record and preserve valuable accounts of what it means to be LGBTQ+ in Britain today.
The letters will be studied by historians at both Goldsmiths; University of London, and Kent State University, as part of the ‘Queer Pandemic: Resilience in Times of Crisis’ research project. The study looks at how queer identities and communities have been shaped and strengthened by both the COVID-19 pandemic and previous crises, including the AIDS epidemic, violence, criminalisation and restricted access to healthcare.
