Pink Brick Project

Over the past 40 years the political and societal attitudes towards lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people has changed beyond recognition. This has been achieved by the dedicated campaigning of LGBT+ individuals and straight allies who have tirelessly worked to achieve equality for all.

The PINKBRICK project and timeline sets out to chart these changes from University's perspective by peering into official records of the University, Guild, and memories of past staff and students.

This website was originally created to accompany an exhibition at the Victoria Gallery & Museum from 21 February to 19 May 2012.
