Queer in Brighton is a heritage project celebrating our city’s unspoken histories and how these have shaped, and continue to shape, the place where we live and play.
They are looking for people to share stories, learn new skills and help identify and celebrate the many individual meanings of what it is to be LGBT/Queer in Brighton. There are lots of different ways you can get involved, learn new skills and meet new people.

Queer in Brighton is offering the following opportunities in November:
Oral History Workshop with Lorraine Sitzia
Join us for an informal and practical introduction to oral history interviewing with an opportunity to handle recording equipment and discuss some of the issues around oral history, life stories and memory. Places are limited to twelve so please apply early. No previous experience of oral history is required – just a keen interest in our queer history.
11th Nov 10.00am-5.00pm at The Writers Place (New Writing South),
9 Jew Street, Brighton, BN1 1UT
A Gathering of Stories with Shaun Levin
How has Brighton informed and shaped your identity as a queer person? Join us for an afternoon of conjuring stories, telling them, and writing them down. Be inspired and reminded, discover, share and learn new ways of shaping stories.
In this gathering of writers, storytellers and story-makers, we will savour and save stories to celebrate and honour the ordinary, the everyday and the fabulous.
Bring photos, letters, texts – anything that helps summon the past, witness the present and unravel the threads of love, sex, masculinity, femininity, home and belonging from the tapestry of being Queer in Brighton. No previous writing experience is required.
17th Nov 1.00pm – 6.00pm at Lighthouse,
28 Kensington Street, Brighton, BN1 4AJ
