Allowed Out: Songs and Stories of LGBT Activism

Allowed Out: Songs and Stories of LGBT Activism

Which critical moments and events have shaped your life?

Who inspired you and encouraged you along the way?

What are your memories and stories of coming out, and of LGBT identity, community and activism?

Members of the LGBT community took part part in free, friendly writing workshops, facilitated by local writer River Wolton in May and June 2012. Some of the writing was used (with author’s permission) in a multi-media performance by Out Aloud LGBT choir at University of Sheffield’s ‘Festival of the Mind’ in September 2012, and was deposited in the Stories of Activism archive in Sheffield Archives.
