Oxford LGBTIQA+ Stories

Help us find the missing pieces!

We are collecting stories of LGBTIQA+ life in Oxford.* We welcome photos of objects, audio and video recordings, artworks, photographs and written pieces. Anything which helps us create a snapshot of what it's like to be LGBTIQA+ in Oxford in the early 21st century.

You can add your story by clicking here. And here's some guidance on how to do it.

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.

Contributing to our City Stories pages is a way of democratising historical narratives. Anyone can upload their images and the Museum does not assume ownership of any of them.

By adding a contribution, you agree to it being shared under the terms of Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial License.

*LGBTIQA+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, and Asexual. The + sign represents other sexual and gender identities which do not fit within the heternormative/cis narrative. 

(Once submitted, it may take up to 5 working days for it to appear on the website.)
