About us

Brighton Ourstory was set up in 1989 by a group of local lesbians and gay men. Our aim is to collect material about our lesbian, gay and bisexual past - and present - and to make sure that our experience is preserved and made visible to the lesbian, gay and bisexual community.

Our main objectives are:

The archive
You can find out more about the archive, it's history and our hopes for it's future.

Our approach is very much that of an oral history group interested in ordinary lives: our primary focus is not academic or theoretical.

We focus especially (but not exclusively) on material about Brighton or with some Brighton connection.

If our work interests you, please contact us or better still get involved.
