Proud! Telling LGBT+ stories in Sheffield
This display has been co-curated by LGBT+ people living in Sheffield to explore the city’s LGBT+ history and contemporary life. Some of this history can seem hidden, but it’s all around us and part of who we are.
Together, we explored themes and stories for the display, and discussed our own experiences and ideas. Themes included historical and inspirational people, coming out, discrimination and prejudice, Sheffield’s LGBT+ scene, family and friends, AIDS and HIV, and inclusion.
As well as the displays curated with the co-curation group, there is also a case with masks created by young people at LGBT+ charity, SAYiT.
