About the Project
This programme works with LGBTQ+ volunteers to explore three distinct archival collections - court cases, NGO records and TV shows - and examine the experiences of the LGBTQ+ community across Northern Ireland.
What can archives tell about criminalisation, civil rights and personal experiences of LGBTQ+ community over the last 100 years?
During September, the volunteers are taking part in guest talks and workshops to create zines documenting today’s key LGBTQ+ issues for PRONI's archives.
Participants will then be offered the opportunity to volunteer with PRONI in a digitisation project that will make its LGBTQ+ records material more digitally accessible and searchable.
NIGRA Scrapbooks (1973-1983)
See some of the scrapbooks of newspaper cuttings from the Northern Ireland Gay Rights Association collection at PRONI (D3762) that were digitised and indexed by our volunteers.
Read the zines that were created by our volunteers documenting today's societal issues such as disability, LGBTQ+ rights, feminism, and activism..
