The 1960s marked the beginning of an organised LGBTQ civil rights movement in the UK, as well as larger waves of migration to the UK, with those of South Asian descent arriving from India, Pakistan, Kenya and Uganda. However, there is little research on queer South Asians who arrived in the UK and how their experiences of racism, homophobia and their transnational connections in South Asia, shaped their (inter)national experience of being queer.
The project team will present some of the work carried out between UK and India to research the experience of queer migration through archives, interviews and workshops with academics, activists and communities.
How we’re keeping you safe
April 2022 update: Keeping you safe and healthy is our number one priority.
If you test positive for Covid-19 or are asked to isolate and are not able to attend your class or pre-booked event, please contact the Bishopsgate Box Office for further information (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please do not come to the Institute in person if you have symptoms or have tested positive.
Wearing a face mask is no longer compulsory but we ask you to consider others when in our building and especially when spending time in crowded and enclosed spaces where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet. You will see many of our staff and volunteers continuing to wear face masks and we are keeping the perspex screens at our reception desks.
Bishopsgate Institute has strict cleaning protocols in place and ventilation throughout the building. There are hand-sanitising stations available throughout the building and touch-free drinking fountains. Find out more about how we’re keeping you safe.
