As part of our Queer & Indecent Exhibition, join curator Kate Fahy as she talks to two local queer Bristol artists for a conversation about queer history, spaces and community .

I’m interested in archive film, and confronting the inaccuracies of film history. The potential of enabling dialogue with rippling positive impact is what drives me. My favourite queer film is unashamedly Carol by Todd Haynes, it helped me to realise myself and Cate Blanchett is just….

Tom has been a practicing artist for 21 years, and produced over 60 projects, across many mediums, including - museum audio-tours, theatre & cabaret. Actively encouraging dialogue with participants, through socially engaged processes such as ‘Tea Parties’, allows me evocative glimpses into everyday life, letting me tell engaging, poetic & unpretentious stories. An overarching theme of my work is that of the outsider & their story, particularly regarding the LGBTQ+ experience, stories that been omitted through archival silence. His work includes Kings Cross (REMIX) exploring the Kings Cross area in London in the 1980's, Haunted Existence, telling a story of a young man excused of gross indecency in the 1950's and had recently researched and developed a new show  called Jenny that shines a light on story of a working class Trans woman in the 1900's working with the Tyne and Wear archives and funded by arts council and Brigstowe institute.

Cheryl Morgan is a co-chair of OutStories Bristol, a volunteer community history group gathering the stories of LGBT+ people living in or associated with Bristol and its surrounds. She is an expert on the history of trans people in the ancient world and has been published in a number of academic venues. Cheryl is a regular speaker on the LGBT History Month circuit, including hosted several events organised by OutStories Bristol in conjunction with M Shed Museum.
