Help tell the story of LGBTQ+ at UCL


Out @ UCL is a network for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or queer staff. UCL’s Alumni Relations team is excited to be collaborating with Out @ UCL on a project involving lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or queer alumni.

The Queer Tapestry

As Out @ UCL turns 10, it will celebrate by creating the Queer Tapestry, a project to uncover the rich histories and voices of UCL’s LGBTQ+ community from the past 50 years. 

Out @ UCL has grown in size and voice over the years to become a visible and instrumental part of UCL. Now it needs your input. Can you share your experiences of life as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or queer student at UCL during the 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s? Or tell your story of how you supported – or could have better connected with – LGBTQ+ friends during this time?

Selected stories will be represented in written and visual forms to form The Queer Tapestry. This will be on public display at UCL throughout February 2019 to coincide with LGBT History Month. The Queer Tapestry will also be documented online for those unable to visit in person. The exhibition will launch with a reception event on Friday 1 February; more details soon.

We invite submissions of approx. 250 words by Sunday 6 January 2019.
