Hackney LGBTQI+ History Drive @ Hackney Museum | England | United Kingdom

Where was your first kiss, defining moment or personal victory?
Hackney Council has launched a drive to unearth these local stories and experiences as part of a drive to build, understand and immortalise LGBTQI+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex plus) history in Hackney.

The crowdsourcing project using online citizen-historian site Historypin, is just one of a host of ways Hackney Council plans to celebrate the boroughs vibrant LGBTQI+ community, and work with local people to create and facilitate the first-ever Hackney LGBTQI+ festival.

To help Hackney Museum build its LBGTQI history collection you can donate your personal records and artefacts or share your memories on the museum’s Historypin page. Visit www.hackney.gov.uk/museum-projects for more information or email hmuseum@hackney.gov.uk.
