Searching for the Invisible: LGBTQ+

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 14th Jun 2018

LGBTQ+ people have always been part of London’s history, but their lives are only partially reflected in the historical record. Some groups of people are almost entirely absent, and others only appear when they transgress the laws or norms of their time. Starting with a curios case of 14th century prostitution this talk will chart the presence and absence of LGBTQ+ lives in the archive. Along the way we will meet judges, moralists and medics as well as lovers, swashbucklers and celebrities.

Join Tom Furber for this journey into the archives. Tom Furber is a Development Officer at London Metropolitan Archives. He has worked on various LGBTQ+ archive projects including the award winning Speak Out: London Diversity City.

This talk is part of our Life Series Events Programme.

Cost: £12
