LGBT History

The Suffolk LGB&T Network was founded in 1988, and evolved from the Suffolk Gay and Lesbian Helpline.

The Pride in Suffolk’s Past project, set up in 2020 and hosted by Suffolk Archives, has two aims: To explore and share the hidden stories of LGBTQ+ people in Suffolk’s past, and to collect contemporary stories of Suffolk’s LGBTQ+ community, documenting people’s experiences through a period of monumental societal change towards sexuality and gender identity [1].
