Explore the history of LGBTQ women from the 1920s to the present day in our Open Archive this Summer!

The Open Archive, Saturday 8th June, 1pm to 3pm

Explore the history of LGBTQ women from the 1920s to the present day. From the rare journal ‘Urania’ published from 1916 to Pride badges, t-shirts and our growing collection of LGBTQ zines. Meet the archivists and researchers, have a chat and enjoy a tour of the stores. This is the first event in an exciting new project with the Lesbian Archive.
