A thought provoking talk by Dr Alan Butler exploring the rich life and histories from the Plymouth LGBTQ communities past and present.
Dr Butler is one of the directors of Pride in Plymouth and also the curator of Plymouth’s LGBT community archive and exhibition as part of his Phd studies with Plymouth University. His PhD study, entitled “Performing LGBT Pride in Plymouth 1950–2012” arose as a direct result of the formation of this LGBT community archive, which also currently informs a dedicated accession within the city’s archives, comprising of oral history interviews and memorabilia pertaining to the performance of LGBT identity in the city over a sixty year period.
This archive was named the Community and Heritage Group’s Most Inspirational Archive of 2011. He continues this work as a Research Fellow and lecturer at Plymouth University.
5.30pm Thursday 20th February 2020
This event will take place in Lecture Theater Two of the Roland Levinsky Building, Plymouth University with refreshments before and after the talk with the actual talk starting at 18:00.
