Opening The Log Books

What if we told you that we could glimpse into LGBT+ life from decades ago? 

The Log Books are a unique set of documents tracking Britain’s queer history through the voices of people who have called for help.

Since 1974 volunteers at Switchboard, the LGBT+ helpline, have written callers’ stories down in log books. Hosts Tash Walker and Adam Smith are re-opening these pages today, to hear worries and joys from Britain’s queer history. Episodes of The Log Books include untold stories from dozens of voices, and conversations about being queer today. The first full episode arrives on November 4th, 2019.

The Log Books is produced by Shivani Dave, Adam Smith and Tash Walker, in partnership with Switchboard, the LGBT+ helpline.
