Headscape worked with London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) to develop a website for the Speak Out London project.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer+ (LGBTQ+) people have always been part of the fabric of London but their histories have been marginalised. Speak Out is a call to action to put LGBTQ+ lives and experience back into the historical record.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Speak Out London volunteers assisted by LMA have created a community archive using oral histories and memorabilia to complement and, where necessary, challenge more formal collections held at LMA.

The Speak Out website focuses on two key content types: oral histories and a gallery of collection images.

The site includes 25 detailed interviews with people from the LGBTQ+ community.
