As part of their 50th Anniversary celebrations, Irish in Britain are putting together an oral history project and are very keen to hear from minority groups, including LGBTQ people.
They are also looking for people to get involved collecting stories and have arranged training for that. If it’s something you would be interested in, get in touch with the good people at Irish in Britain.
Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07826 456 99 if you would like to join the training, would like to be sent printed posters or for any other queries about the heritage project.
