Help us find the missing pieces!

We are collecting stories of LGBTIQA+ life in Oxford. Add a photo of an object, a recording of your memory, or a scanned document that tells something about your life, in your own voice.

Queer history has traditionally been marginalised, and within queer history not all stories have the same visibility. This is our way of trying to fill the gaps.

No matter which part of LGBTIQA+ you identify with or as, your story is important. It's a piece of Oxford's history - so go ahead and make sure your voice is heard.
