hidden Voices


The LGBT History project for Reading. In partnership with Reading Museum and the HLF Lottery Fund.

Mission Statement:
To visually and orally bring the history of the Reading’s LGBT community to life by remembering what came before equality. By opening up the past and bringing understanding to the present, we can bring inspiration and education to future generations. To give a voice to those that had to be kept quiet. To open the mind that was once closed and to inspire the inquisitive.

Together we can listen to the Hidden Voices so that the loneliness and fear can be heard.

May the past be remembered so that the future can be unbiased and equal.

The project involves Support U sourcing and documenting the history of the LGBT Community of Reading.  The final output will be ready for display in Reading Museum from February 2015. Where we would of collated everything we found past and present to show what life was like the the LGBT community of Reading before the internet.

If you are interested in helping us as a volunteer, participant or offering objects or items we could display at the museum please contact us at history@supportu.org.uk
