Four decades of pride and prejudice: Celebrating and discovering Liverpool's gay past and future.

IN NOVEMBER, Liverpool will add its own milestone to gay rights history with the launch of a unique lesbian & gay perspective called Homotopia. As part of the celebrations, there will be the unveiling of the first-ever Liverpool lesbian & gay archive project.

Tales From Yester-Queer will be a unique collaboration between key partners including Unity Theatre, Homotopia, The Armistead Project and Liverpool Record Office. Using a variety of sources the project hopes to facilitate a much larger perspective of the hidden histories of Liverpool's lesbian and gay past.

The aim of Tales From Yester-Queer is to produce a comprehensive Liverpool lesbian/gay archive gathering, preserving and making available material for anyone who wants to research or may have an interest in Liverpool's gay/lesbian past.

It is hoped that the archive will be the catalyst for a major public perspective of Gay & Lesbian Liverpool.

The project is currently looking for local lesbians and gays who want to make a lasting and real contribution to a definitive and long-term project.

All stories will be treated in the strictest confidence with no need for personal details. If you have a story to tell please get in touch with Jean at the project office on 0151 233 6394 or by em ailing e-archive@homotopia. org
