Ideal Homes

High Wycombe Queer History Project

Ideal Homes: LGBTQ+ Lives in Suburban Wycombe explores the queer histories of the suburban-style town of High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, as a case study for how LGBTQ+ communities have existed within the traditionally heteronormative site of the suburbs. Sammut attempts to explore how, when sharing these narratives, to speak of, not for, others, and considers the importance of including minority stories in the canon of history, and the damage that excluding them has done.
