Are you passionate about celebrating and preserving the rich history of the LGBTQIA+ community in Hastings? Do you want to make a meaningful impact by sharing the stories of our vibrant and diverse community? If so, the Hastings Queer History Collective needs you!

Following two hugely successful LGBTQIA+ history projects at the Hastings Museum & Art Gallery (HMAG), the Collective is now seeking new members to work on their next project.

The new project is yet to be decided and ideas will be discussed at the next meeting on Saturday 13th May from 11-1.30pm.

They are looking for local LGBQTIA+ folk who are interested in exploring, documenting and illuminating the stories of queer people in Hastings.

Whether you are an experienced historian, a skilled researcher, or just someone who is passionate about LGBTQIA+ history, we welcome you to apply

If you have any questions regarding this project or joining, please contact Hannah –
