Lost Property: Listen to some of Hull’s LGBT+ stories

These personal recording offer a glimpse into life as a member of the LGBT+ community here in Hull.

If you’ve popped into a local café recently, you might have spotted one of our Lost Property zines. Created by members of Hull’s LGBT+ community, all of whom are non-professional writers who responded to an open call out back in May, the zine features personal stories with themes ranging from advice you wish you could have told your teenage self, to meeting your first love and dealing with discrimination.

And if you haven’t picked up a zine, fear not. Stories are often told best from the mouths of their creators, and in this series of audio clips, our storytellers share their unique tales with you.
