Queer Stories: Yorkshire MESMAC: LGBTQ+ histories in Yorkshire

Emma worked with Leeds-based charity Yorkshire MESMAC to support them in creating a Stage 1 bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Queer Stories project will work with Yorkshire communities to collect, interpret and promote the heritage of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ+) people in the region.  These stories are under-represented in museum and archive collections but are important for individual, community and regional identities. The project was successful in securing funding from the HLF in February 2017  and we wish them all the best with researching and developing their Stage 2 bid.
