Living London...

Last night I went along to the launch of the Living London project web site at Islington Town Hall.

Living London is a groundbreaking oral history project which examines the history of housing and policing for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people in London over the last twenty-five years – viewed thorough two community organisations: Stonewall Housing and Galop (in partnership with LGBT History Month). The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The site contains oral histories - many in full - flyers, posters and documents all relating to LGBT events since the early 1980s. There is a fascianting timeline of gay history over the past 25 years.

And the lovely Matt Cook was giving a talk too (so what's not to like?)
