The city of Plymouth is planning to explore its gay history over the next twelve months courtesy of the Plymouth Pride Forum

£100 Cash Prize Other prizes to be announced.

The idea of the archive was born from the fact that much of Plymouth’s LGBT history is currently stored in the memories of the older proportion of our community and the plan is to take this opportunity to capture their memories and stories now.

With the aid of funding recently received from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the archive will form the basis of an exhibition in early 2012, at Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery. Volunteers will be offered the opportunity to help curate the exhibition and also create new materials, which reflect where our community is today and also how we see it developing in the future.
