Welcome!

Hello and welcome to Steel City Queer History. We are a Sheffield based group of historians researching and sharing the LGBTQ+ history of the city. Currently, we are running ‘Our Steel City’, a project to put Sheffield’s LGBTQ+ history on the map.

Below is the map featuring stories submitted by the Sheffield LGBTQ+ community. Click on the pins in the map to reveal the stories.

If you would like to find out more about this, and to submit your own story to the map, please do so at the Our Steel City page.

Click and hold your mouse to move around the map.
