The Hands on Heritage project

LGBT+ heritage

LGBT+ heritage

Heritage has a crucial role to play in contributing to a flourishing, more equitable and inclusive society.

Over the past 25 years we've invested over £5million across the UK in sharing stories of love, creativity, activism and much more.

This summer we're celebrating some of the inspirational LGBT+ heritage projects we've been proud to fund.

Explore some of our highlights below. And if you're inspired to explore LGBT+ heritage, we'd love to hear from you.
