Description: A major collection of interviews relating to gay and lesbian (homosexual) experience in Britain. The original oral history project was established in 1985 as part of the Hall Carpenter Archives, which had been set up in 1982. In 1989 the archives were forced to close due to lack of funding (partly due to the demise of the Greater London Council) and the collections were dispersed. The archives of press cuttings, publications, manuscripts and ephemera relating to gay and lesbian groups were deposited with the London School of Economics. The oral history collection, including correspondance and some transcripts, was donated to the National Sound Archive in 1989. C456/01-64 comprise the collection as deposited. C456/65 onwards (to C456/128 as at July 2000) comprise additional interviews commissioned by the NSA.
