The stories of queer women are often missing from our narratives of feminist activism. That’s why we decided to dedicate our latest oral history project to uncovering some of those stories.
We are delighted that we have already recorded an interview with a member of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, and have many more wonderful interview lined up. I know there are more though – we just need to reach the women.
If you identify as a queer women activist, or know someone whose story you think we need to record, please get in touch. You don’t have to have been born in East London to qualify for inclusion, but you do need to have some kind of connection with the boroughs of Waltham Forest, Hackney or Tower Hamlets. That might be through work, activism, family or living.
We have 20 volunteer interviewers, who have been trained by the Oral History Society and are eager to meet you and hear your stories. Contact us today!
