The overall aim of LGBT+ History month is to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public.
Registered Charity No. 1156352

This is done by:

  • Increasing the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (“LGBT+”) people, their history, lives and their experiences in the curriculum and culture of educational and other institutions, and the wider community;
  • Raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBT+ community;
  • Working to make educational and other institutions safe spaces for all LGBT+ communities; and
  • Promoting the welfare of LGBT+ people, by ensuring that the education system recognises and enables LGBT+ people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole.

The Schools OUT UK Archive is now at the Bishopsgate Institute

We have chosen Bishopsgate Institute for all our archives as we feel it is one of the UK’s most accessible and friendly archive; home to a huge range of LGBT+ resources, including thousands of journals, books, banners, badges, t-shirts, memorabilia, oral histories, written personal accounts, private papers, reports, postcards, posters, press clippings, photographs and more on individuals and organisations important to understanding and celebrating LGBT+ history, politics and culture. The collections include the archives of organisations such as Stonewall, Switchboard and Outrage! and the records of important LGBT+ activists such as Peter Tatchell and Paris Lees. The collections are open to all; no need to book in advance to come and see them or to undertake research. Follow the link below to access the catalogue and find out more about this incredible repository of LGBT+ history.

Our papers are quite extensive covering our own activities and myriad LGBT+ organisations, events and conferences. The catalogue can be found here. Before you have a clear out of papers, memorabilia and photos contact  Stef Dickers at Bishopsgate or your local archive.

We need to have a record of what we did and who we are. We must not be invisibilised!
