Queer and the state (creative workshop)


Thursday 24 November | 18.00–21.00

Book now >

The National Archives and the London Metropolitan Archives invite young people (16–25) to take part in two new workshops based on LGBTQ+ experiences past and present. Participants will delve into previously closed secret police and government files and newly released oral testimonies to experience the government and the community perspective. Join us to explore how queer spaces were targeted and spied on, and discover the resilience of the community in response. This event will include a facilitated discussion around the original material and engage with contemporary debates such as the closing of queer venues. The event will end with a creative workshop reflecting on the past experience of LGBTQ+ communities.

Free Admission | Booking required
