Documenting and visualizing LGBTI+ history
We would welcome loans or donations of personal mementos and everyday items, photos, video and audio recordings, flyers, leaflets, posters, stickers, transparencies, banners, invitations, admission tickets, diaries, clothing and any other records and objects which have been and continue to be significant to the life of the LGBTI+ communities and the lesbian-feminist women’s movement in Munich.
In addition to private possessions, we are interested in objects and records documenting the development of the LGBTI+ communities and the work of associations, centers, initiatives and networks in Munich. We would also like to receive documentation which enables us to visualize bars, shops and other important places which have been and continue to be important for this scene.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
Do you know any people who would like to share their memories? Would you like to help preserve and provide a visual record of Munich’s LGBTI+ history?
Maybe you still have a protest poster or pamphlet from demonstrations for LGBTI+ rights? A souvenir of a bar that was used as a meeting point but closed long ago? An item of clothing you wore for your wedding or partnership ceremony, or was your favorite going-out outfit?
If so, please contact us directly, or tell your friends and acquaintances about our project! We look forward to hearing from you.
