Surrey investigates its gay history

Surrey county council has started an investigation into the county's gay history after the charity Gay Surrey donated its archives to the Surrey Historical Centre.

Volunteers are to spend the next few months working through approximately five million records, dating back to the 12th century, in order to find evidence of gay life.

They are aiming to put an exhibition together on the county's hidden history, in time for LGBT history month in February.
