Plymouth’s LGBT+ History: A Virtual Tour

Plymouth LGBT Archive

Running time: 47 minutes

From the 1950s through to the 1980s, an underground scene grew for the LGBT+ community in Plymouth.

The community tended to live ‘in the moment’ and in places and spaces where people felt more able to show aspects of their identity that society tried to tell them were shameful.  

Although many of these spaces no longer stand, the impact they had on queer lives can still be felt today.

Join Dr Alan Butler as he takes us on a virtual cruise around some of these spaces and considers how we build on this complicated past whilst also looking to the future. 

More information on the diversity and talents that exist within Plymouth’s LGBT+ communities can be found on the Pride in Plymouth site.
