Join us for a new Hands-on History course that provides an accessible and informative introduction to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender histories. From press coverage of the Wolfenden Report to grassroots campaigns opposing Section 28, this workshop uses photographs, pamphlets and ephemera from our Special Collections to explore and discuss the daily realities of life for an emerging LGBTQ+ community in a changing social, and political British landscape in the second half of the twentieth century.
