About

Five Decades of LGBT+ life in Britain told by the people who lived it.

pholgbtabout1The BBC in collaboration with the Open University is crowdsourcing photos, memories, film footage, historic documents, club flyers, outfits, protest banners, posters, music, diary entries and much more to help tell the story of 50 momentous years for LGBT+ people in Britain.

pholgbtabout2Do you have arrest documents before 1967, when loving someone could send you to jail? Or post-1967? Or the banner you took to your first Pride? A letter you wrote to come out to your family? The person, place, book, music, or film that made you think it’s actually ok to gay? Posters of your first pop star crush? Early leaflets about HIV/AIDS? Club flyers and amazing outfits?

We will be making a BBC television series based around some of the stories, objects and memories.
