Haringey Vanguard - BAME LGBTQ+ Community Heritage Project
Haringey is proud to have a rich and varied LGBTQ+ history.
The Haringey Vanguard project has been exploring the exciting history of the borough’s LGBTQ+ BAME community between the 1970s and 1990s.
It has been developed to encourage people to creatively engage with and be inspired by archives and collections. It is looking for people to interview from that time, and is actively seeking to collect personal photographs and memorabilia for Haringey. The project also offers volunteers training in research, how to collect oral histories, and special workshops for community groups and people interested in BAME LGBTQ+ heritage.
Haringey Vanguard is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and is a partnership heritage project between Haringey Archive and Museum Service and London Metropolitan Archives.
The project began in 2018 and will last until the end of 2020.
