Put LGBTQ Heritage on the Map
We have teamed up with Leeds Beckett University and community groups nationwide to record and celebrate the places lived, loved, worked and played in by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people over the centuries.
The project, called Pride of Place, will run until summer 2016, combining images, archive materials and research with the places and stories that are important to LGBTQ history. You can contribute too - either by plotting the places you know of on our interactive map, or why not help the research team and become a digital volunteer?
Which places do you care about?
Share the places you care about on our interactive map where you can:
- Plot your own LGBTQ heritage places
- See what buildings and landscapes others are highlighting
- Pinpoint well-known places that have a secret LGBTQ history
- Add images and videos

Which stories are important to you?
LGBTQ heritage places include everything from bars and nightclubs and houses lived in by lesbian, gay and trans people to meeting places for LGBTQ activists. Tell us:
- Which histories do you think we should find out more about?
- Which little-known stories deserve wider recognition?
