Queer Beyond London: Culture, Place and Home in Four English Cities since the 1960s
The fourth event in the Leeds Cultural Conversations series 2019/20.
Presented by Professor Alison Oram.
Our research exploring LGBTQ life and community in four cities (Manchester, Brighton, Plymouth and Leeds) since 1965 found very different urban queer cultures Discussing bedsits in Brighton, communal households in Leeds and gay gentrification in Manchester, this talk will show how the distinct character of LGBTQ politics in each city has shaped its queer domestic lives. This event will coincide with LGBTQ History Month.
