Mapping LGBT+ Bristol is a collaboration between Bristol University’s Know Your Bristol project, Bristol City Council’s Know Your Place website, and OutStories Bristol. The project will create a permanent digital archive and digital map of the LGBT+ history of Bristol and its surrounds.

Activities will include:

  • Gathering the stories of LGBT+ people through oral interviews.
  • Research in the Bristol Record Office, libraries and other local archives.
  • Collating and storing the digital material we collect and uploading it to websites.
  • Creating an online digital map of Bristol’s LGBT+ history using thecollected material
  • Creating a custom-made mobile app and a user-friendly interface embedded in OutStories’ own website.
