The Norfolk LGBTQ+ Collection is comprised of ephemera (leaflets, posters, flyers), maps, magazines, books, badges, photographs, zines, amongst many other items telling local LGBTQ+ stories. The collection has been donated by local LGBTQ+ groups and individuals, including Norwich Pride and the Norfolk LGBT+ Project.
