Building on extensive life histories collected from narratives of members of LGB communities, Dr Jane Traies and Dr Paul Simpson will shed light on previously undocumented lives. Their research, conducted among lesbian and bisexual women in the UK and gay and bisexual men in Manchester, reveals hidden stories of love, bodies, sex, families, friends and life under the radar. The stories will entertain, inspire and energize us to a new, inclusive politics of age and sexuality.

The seminar will be introduced by Professor Julie Fish, Director for The Centre for LGBTQ+ research, DMU.

The event is collaboration between De Montfort University, Leicester LGBT Centre and Leicester Ageing Together.

Refreshments will be available from 5.30pm.
