From punishment to pride: LGBTQ+ archives at Surrey History Centre, online event

9 June 2021, online

Our content provider the Surrey History Centre has announced an online event that will take place on 9 June at 5.30 pm: From Punishment to Pride: LGBTQ+ archives at Surrey History Centre.

Surrey has a rich and remarkable LGBTQ+ history. Join Surrey History Centre to learn more about the Surrey connections of some famous and not-so-famous LGBTQ+ lives, including Dame Ethel Smyth, Edward Carpenter, E.M. Forster, Gwen Farrar and Norah Blaney, Harry Daley, Gwen Lally and Alan Turing, to name just a few. You’ll discover why we raise awareness of this often little-known area of Surrey’s past, hear about some of our LGBTQ+ records and outreach projects, and see how our collections help to reveal important stories from 18th century punishment to 21st century Pride.

The event will feature Di Stiff, Collections Development Archivist & SCC LGBTQ+ Network Ally.

Tickets £5.00. With the confirmation you will receive the Zoom link.
