The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Celebrating LGBT+ experiences in Sheffield

Proud! is a collection of stories and displays from Sheffield's LGBT+ communities, chronicling LGBT+ life in the city. The collections include protest and awareness flyers from the late 1980s, items relating to growing up gay in the city in the 1990s, and wedding attire from civil partnerships and weddings from recent years. And at the Millennium Gallery you'll find materials celebrating Edward Carpenter, an activist whose influential writings laid the foundation for the gay liberation movement of the 20th century. This short film looks at the displays at Weston Park Museum.
