West Yorkshire Queer Stories Showcase

West Yorkshire Queer Stories Showcase

Details

The West Yorkshire Queer Stories Showcase is a celebration of queer experience past and present. This free event features a selection of new short films brought to life by discussion and artefacts from local LGBTIQ+ history.

West Yorkshire Queer Stories has been gathering oral histories from a diverse range of LGBTIQ+ people across the region, as part of an archiving initiative supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Yorkshire MESMAC. The resulting films and recordings will not only help diversify the collections of local museums and archives, but also feed into new resources, artistic endeavours and the way we think about the people’s history of Leeds and beyond.

This event will showcase a range of short films made especially for the project, exploring queer people’s relationships to the objects and heirlooms they hold dear, and how the memories attached can be preserved for the future.

Doors open at 6pm, for visitors to browse the accompanying artefacts.

Held as part of Heritage Open Days and supported by Leeds Inspired and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Credit cards accepted (no fee)On-site light refreshments
