OUT! Pride Pioneers: Research Visits

OUT! Pride Pioneers: Research Visits

30th September 2015 @ 06:00pm

OUT! is a Heritage Lottery Funded project which celebrates LGBT life in Manchester.

OUT! will bring together projects championed by organisations including Archives+, LGBT Foundation, Gaydio and LGBT Youth North West and provides the opportunity for you to add your own stories to create an online resource of LGBT stories.

OUT! will bring the rainbow tiles across the city to life to develop your own personalised trails based on geographic location and subject matter.

Get involved as a Pride Pioneers; source oral histories, research content and train community groups on how to use the website. The Pride Pioneers are volunteers who will meet regularly, receive training and be key to creating awareness, campaigning for equality and celebrating LGBT life in Manchester.


These following research visits are designed to give you the skills and knowledge for researching LGBT histories across the city...
