Do you have any knowledge of LGBTQ+ history?
Yes! I think being part of the Into the Outside project, it’s been something that we have focused on quite a lot.
That is where most of my LGBTQ+ history knowledge has come from. I did have a bit before, but it was mostly more about American history because that’s how Pride started. Then I’ve been learning over here about the British history of it.
But also I’m at university and I write a lot of essays from the perspective of queer theory and I think that has helped with the history, because I have had to understand where queer history falls into the timeline of things and why those opinions are those opinions.
