Speaker: Victoria Iglikowski-Broad, Diverse Histories Principal Records Specialist at The National Archives

Despite the risks involved, the twentieth century saw a thriving underground queer community develop. Using unique archive items, this talk seeks to tell the important story of some of the clandestine LGBTQ+ spaces that were raided and closed by police and the covert methods of communication that had to be relied upon.

Through photographs, court reports, witness statements and even tantalising love letters that were never meant for our eyes, this talk will give an insight into these little know, underground venues and the powerful voices of individuals inside them.
