The centre is the first of its kind to receive government funding.
20 volunteers received training in recording and editing oral histories. There were also a number of public events to engage the wider community – which took place during LGBT History Month in February.
The project launched with a display to attract new volunteers. This was further developed to create a touring exhibition following oral history research. The exhibition is now permanently on display at the centre. A DVD was also produced, which has been deposited at Leicestershire Records Office and Media Archive for Central England.
