Living history project

Great news!

We have received a grant of £3000 from the Rainbow Fund to conduct a living history project that explores and preserves the history of LGBTQ families across the South East, encompassing research into changing attitudes, case studies, photographs and personal reflections. The research will reflect on how wider social and legislative changes have impacted on LGBTQ family life and the cultural shift towards LGBTQ parenting, giving insights into how our community has changed over the last twenty years.

The vision is that the completed project will be presented as an exhibition of photographs, text and possibly some video and voice recordings which will bring to life the voices and experiences of individual members over the past 20 years against a backdrop of wider social and legislative change. This will be launched at a 20th birthday celebration event for Rainbow Families in Feb 2016 to coincide with LGBTQ history month.
