This E-mag is a timeline of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBTQ+) history with regard to Wales. It includes people, places, events, publications, films, books, allies – all of which illustrates our rich queer past.
The timeline is one of the outcomes of a 2011 National Heritage Lottery Funded (NHLF) project Welsh Pride hosted by the charity the LGBT Excellence Centre. It was the first funded project to explore a history of sexual orientation and gender identity in Wales.
The culmination of this work was the first Welsh LGBT+ exhibition launched during History Month 2012 at the Pier Head in Cardiff Bay. Material gathered during the project was shared with our partners Glamorgan Archives; Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales; and Cardiff Story Museum (now Museum of Cardiff). Six oral histories were also completed and these are now lodged with Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales and Museum of Cardiff.
