BBC crowd-sourcing memories for new LGBT history documentary
Local, National News
Posted on 21 Sep 2016

In 2017 the BBC is marking fifty years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality. The BBC is crowdsourcing photos, memories, film footage, historic documents, club flyers, outfits, protest banners, posters, music, diary entries and much more to help tell the story of LGBT+ life in Britain from 1967 to 2016.


They will be making an interactive crowd-sourced archive of LGBT+ life and a BBC television series based around some of the stories, objects and memories contributed.

If there's something that has defined your life as an LGBT+ person over the last 50 years, then get in touch and let production company 7 Wonder know what you have at history@7wonder.co.uk
