    Northgate Hall, the Blenheim, Jolly Farmers and more - let's walk and talk about Oxford's queer spaces of the past!

    Do you remember the Lesbian & Gay Community Centre at the Northgate Hall? Did you use to go to the Brewery Gate when it was a lesbian pub? Have you been going to the Jolly Farmers for years and years? Or is this the first time you’ve heard about any of these places? Either way, come along on this ‘walk and talk’ where we will see these and some other Oxford’s queer spaces of the past, and have a chat about what they were like. Share your memories or learn something new – everyone is welcome.

    Our third community exhibition will feature stories behind Oxford’s queer spaces. From our local gay and lesbian pubs to printed publications, from support organisations to the Gay and Lesbian Community Centre on St Michael’s Street, we will showcase individuals’ memories and experiences of these spaces through oral histories, photographs and objects. The exhibition has been created in partnership with the Tales of Our City project and Oxford Pride, and co-curated by members of Oxford’s LGBTIQA+ community.
