Pride in Suffolk’s Past Exhibition
A brand new free exhibition at The Hold, Ipswich
17th May – 4th July 2021
Pride in Suffolk’s Past explores the hidden histories of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender non-conforming people in Suffolk’s past. Due to legal and social repression these stories have all too often gone untold. Through original documents these experiences can now be shared for future generations to understand how things have changed over time, and what work is still to be done.
Alongside contributions shared by the LGBTQ+ community in Suffolk today and discussion pieces, Pride in Suffolk’s Past presents the experiences of Suffolk residents through a period of significant change in attitudes towards sexuality and gender identity.
