As this years LGBT history month is entitled ‘Geography, Mapping the World’ I am continuing my social mapping project on LGBT+ history, experiences and spaces in Deptford. Last year I spoke to and interviewed a number of local organisations and individuals who told me of the personal experiences in Deptford as a member of the LGBT+ community. The results were very interesting. I asked participants to mark the map with their personal experiences. Some people labelled their favourite bars and restaurants, some marked the places they had experienced abuse or harassment, and other recalled LGBT-friendly places in Deptford that no longer exist.
Please see the website for further details.
🌈💫 If you would like to contribute your own LGBT+ experience of Deptford or share a memory of old LGBT+ spaces feel free to email me or find me on Twitter. All contributions will be added to the online map (see link) and can be anonymous. 🌈💫
