Birmingham Gay Community Centre

Did you use, work or volunteer at Birmingham Gay Community Centre?

From 1976 to 1979, the centre in Digbeth operated as one of the first LGBTQ+ community centres in the UK. You are invited to share your experiences, document how you remember the building and help produce a new archive of LGBTQ+ venues across Birmingham.

Your participation will involve a 45-minute interview at Birmingham LGBT Centre. You will be invited to:

  • Talk about your experiences
  • Remember the layout of the building
  • Document these in an informal diagram

To take part or for more information, please contact Ryan Kearney at
