Your community story

Our LGBTQ map of Cornwall currently shows a number of historical queer stories and now we  want to open this map up to community submissions! 

We would like to collect stories from the Cornish LGBTQ community to document how Queer Cornwall looks today and throughout modern history. We would like to document past events, festivals, meetings, strikes, protests, night clubs – any stories that detail life in Cornwall as a queer person. From the first pride in Cornwall to the virtual pride of 2020, we want to hear your stories!

Documenting our experiences will ensure that these stories are not lost like many of the historical queer stories that came before us, and by sharing these stories we hope to stay connected the community and state proudly that: we’re here & we’re queer.

Lets make History
