Abstract or Description:

Queer Pandemic: Resilience in Times of Crisis is a video-based oral history project to collect stories about the experiences of LGBTQ+ people in the UK in the era of COVID-19.

The project explores connections between the current pandemic and previous crises related to the health and safety of LGBTQ+ people. These crises include (but are not limited to) HIV/Aids, violence, criminalisation, and restricted access to healthcare. These crises have shaped queer identities and this current crisis should be no different.

Queer Pandemic explores how queer identities and communities have been shaped and strengthened by individual and community responses to COVID-19 and previous crises. The project will use remote video technology in gathering these oral histories, which will become part of the Virtually Queer collection of Queer Britain, the national LGBTQ+ museum.
