Rochdale in Rainbows presents: LGBT History: Past & Present

Touchstones Rochdale is exploring the borough’s LGBT+ history. Why are there so many gaps in the collection? What can we do to document and build on LGBT+ past and future in the borough? Join us with Drew Ellery from Manchester Central Libraries, who'll shine a light on some of the projects they've been working on to diversify and make more accessible the collections they work with. The event will be open to discussion afterwards to tackle what we can be doing as custodians of the collection to ensure it's more accessible and representative of the LGBT+ community in Rochdale.
