Being Civil In Redbridge
Please visit our site for our “Being Civil in Redbridge” oral history project, this includes oral histories, film and educational resources for schools
Have you been involved in the journey for LGBT equality? Have you participated in a civil partnership, or do you intend to have a same-sex marriage? Would you like to share your experiences as an LGBT person living, working and playing in Redbridge? If so, we want to hear from you!
Being Civil in Redbridge is an exciting oral history project seeking to record the stories of the LGBT community in Redbridge, and to chart the road to equality for same-sex couples through these stories. We are seeking people to participate in a variety of ways: by sharing their stories (being interviewed) about their experience of the road to equality, and by volunteering as a researcher and/or interviewer. Full training will be provided to volunteers. These stories will form the basis of a new exhibition which will tour local venues, a 20-minute video documentary featuring interviewees, and school workshops to tackle school based homophobia and trans-phobia in the borough. We will be adding material collected for the project to the website, so keep watching for more updates! This is a partnership project with Redbridge Rainbow Community, RAMFEL and Eastside Community Heritage, and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. If you would like more information about the project, please contact us!
