The LGBT History Project is a team of, currently, three people with a (quite amateur) interest in the hidden history of LGBT people. Between us, we represent a good proportion of theL, G, B and T.
For several years now, we have been rummaging through the National Archives to see what lurks in the nation's official record.
So far we've uncovered tales of harsh policing in the 30s,as well as some intriguing signs that civil servants in the 40s and 50s were almost sympathetic to trans men. Hopefully, more will turn up as we dig further.
We all do this in our personal time and we are not funded. However, we are working to produce a magazine in PDF format for February 2012, as our contribution to LGBT History Month.
