Formerly Nottingham & Notts Lesbian & Gay Switchboard
Our two homes. On the left, 33 Mansfield Road (shown boarded up after closure). This was the base of Nottingham CVS which we used from 1974 to 1999. In 1999 we, and Nottingham CVS, moved down the road to 7 Mansfield Road to the office block shown on the right.
In 2000, Nottinghamshire Living History Archives won a millennium lottery grant to organise 90 local minihistories.
Notts Lesbian and Gay Switchboard was given a grant to produce one of the histories and the outcomes included:
1. A book looking at local LGBT developments since the 1967 Sexual Offences act with Switchboard providing a thread from 1974 onwards.
2. 20 recordings of reminiscences from people aged from 25 to 85
3. Many photographs
4. An interactive CD ROM
Many of the resources were transferred in 2005 to a website and this generated interest from others who eventually got together to develop the Heritage Lottery funded project which became Nottinghamshire's Rainbow Heritage
The Switchboard/Network always has a presence at the various Nottingham Pride Festivals as shown in the pictures below.
