Also, take a tour of the ‘Into the Outside’ exhibition.  This is a young people’s project, which examines how issues faced today by those of a similar age identifying as LGBTQ+ compare with those faced by young LGBTQ+ people over the past forty years in the same city.  The project was supported with access to archive materials including the National Lesbian and Gay Survey, culminating in a brand new youth archive at The Keep.
