Doing it in Public: Queer History beyond the Academy
Talk for LGBT History Month 2019 by Dr Justin Bengry, Goldsmiths, University of London.

History surrounds us. Across mass media, digital spaces, and the built environment, public history is a key site for making history both inside and outside the academy – and for making history accessible to the widest audience. Queer History is no different. Drawing on my experiences of working on major queer public history projects, including Historic England’s Pride of Place and Chanel 4’s Convicted for Love, this talk will explore first-hand the challenges and opportunities of doing queer public history. Our efforts as public historians are only ever partly about the past. They hold incredible resonance and importance in the present by highlighting long histories of gender and sexual diversity, struggle, and community building. Queer public history is important and it is urgent.
