The UK LGBT Archive (formerly The LGBT History Project) is an archive of the the knowledge 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 as well as 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, and of course events, pubs and clubs. Anything you can think of that has been related to you as an LGBT person.
In December 2015 the project was renamed from The LGBT History Project to The UK LGBT Archive.
