Grant awarded for research on Lesbian and Gay history
Heritage Lottery Fund has granted 49,600 pounds for research on the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans genders (LGBT) in Wales.
L G B T Centre Wales, is organizing history month in February.
The project will be the first to document LGBT history of Wales. The LGBT Excellence centre will be working with museums and other organizations to create archive of stories, photographs and artifacts.
Owain Rhys, a curator at St Fagans National History Museum, explained that the particular subject was under represented in the collections and this project would be an opportunity to correct it.
