About this Archive
The "From a Whisper to a Roar" project (2019-2020) collected reminiscences from lesbian, bisexual, and transwomen over a period of roughly fifty years – from the time of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1967, when the focus was on men and the legal fight, to the modern day.
At this time there was silence around women’s issues and women’s voices were rarely heard. Over the intervening years women gradually came out of the shadows. Women’s voices grew louder and they have become activists on many levels. The project was co-ordinated by Evelyn Pittman for Opening Doors London and was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
