Queer and Coloured: Immigrant LGBT Communities of Colour and the City of Coventry


How do queer people of colour relate to the city of Coventry?

Led by Dr Somak Biswas (Department of History, University of Warwick - pictured right), this project will focus on the history, politics and practices of a community that has existed as a subculture in Coventry since the 1970s.

Through multi-sited archival and oral interviews, this project aims to reconstruct how the queer community of colour have experienced Coventry even as they sought refuge, often in the face of intense homophobia, Islamophobia, and racism.
