Well it has been such a long time since my last post, I thought it was about time to get on with it! In my defence I decided to prioritise writing my dissertation over writing about writing my dissertation, and due to this stroke of genius, and having three weeks off work I have finally got it done and even better, I passed! I'm not going to pretend it was done to the best of my abilities, given the timescales and slight 'rabbit in headlights' syndrome which descended upon me during those last weeks, but at least Sheffield's LGBT history has got a place to start.
My intentions now, once I have tidied all of the scattered journal articles and scraps of paper from the spare room, is to pick up from where my dissertation left off and carry on in much the same way. In terms of the blog I will be disseminating much of what I have found during my research (some, in fact most of which never made it to the dissertation) in the form of themed posts and I will hopefully continue to do this as I build upon my research. I also hope that this blog can become a place where people can discuss their stories of Sheffield's LGBT past, and post their own memories.
I have loads to talk about regarding what I have found and other things on the horizon so watch this space as they say!
