LGBT+ Linking Lives

TfL Ride with Pride Vehicles. New Routemaster bus, black cab and DLR train painted in rainbow colours in support of LGBT staff network, OUTbound.

Transport doesn’t just take people from A to B, it connects us - it allows disparate parts of our city, and of our lives, to link.

Our new collecting project aims to collect stories about how transport connects LGBT+ lives and communities across our Capital. We want to hear about the journeys, sites and stories in which transport has played a role in your LGBT+ experience in London.

On our Historypin site, you can literally map out the routes and regions that matter to you. Place a pin on the place you want to commemorate on our interactive map below and pair the pin with a written or visual account of the story that spot, station or service can tell.

This map will serve as a public, community-led platform to capture and promote these stories. Curators at the museum will also be using the platform to work with you to capture your stories and make formal acquisitions to better represent this narrative in our collections.

Read more about some of the LGBT+ items we've collected so far on our blog.

You can also submit your stories to us by emailing [email protected].
