Into The Outside: New Online Resource for LGTBTQ Young People & Teachers

Photoworks led Into the Outside: is a Heritage Lottery Fund learning project with young people, examining Brighton & Hove's LGBTQ+ past and creating a new archive of queer youth experience for the city and beyond.

Aspects of the project have now been published online. The website (www.intotheoutside.org.uk) is a national educational resource for teachers, youth workers and young people interested in knowing more about or relating to LGBTQ+ youth experience. It is the first resource of it's kind.

Young people in Brighton & Hove have been examining how issues faced today by young people identifying as LGBTQ+ compare with those faced by young LGBTQ+ people over the past 50 years in the same city. 

Their research and project work has culminated in a new online queer archive for their peers and others to utilise.

ITO Participant, Charlie Snow, said: 

"It's been eye-opening learning about issues faced by LGBTQ+ people in the past and how some of them are still a problem today for many. 

"Sometimes it can be difficult when you're trying to figure out how you identify, but being part of this project has helped me to be proud of who I am." 


This new online educational resource includes elements of the queer archive, including photography, written responses and oral histories. 

The website also has a series of materials for those working in education; teachers, youth workers and others working with young LGBTQ+ groups or individuals.

Into the Outside also investigates the period between 1967 (which saw the Sexual Offences Act partially decriminalize homosexual activity) and the present-day, encompassing some key historical moments for the LGBTQ+ community, such as the first Gay Pride marches, Section 28, the reduction of the age of consent, the Civil Partnership Act and the Equality Act.

In creating the resource and on the project, the Into the Outside group worked with many different communities and at events across the city to pull together their research and responses, including Pride and TransPride, to research and collect oral histories, many of which were included in an exhibition that was part of Brighton Photo Biennial earlier this year.  

The programme was facilitated by artist Helen Cammock, who has many years of experience running high calibre arts projects with young people. 

Helen also contributed to the resources available online, alongside celebrated poet, Dean Atta.

The Twilight Sad have shared brand new song, I/m Not Here [missing face], a driving, motorik return from the much-loved Scots, with wailing guitars and swirling synths circling around frontman James Graham's repeated declarations of "I don't want to be around you anymore."
