This paper outlines queer archival work in Brighton and attempts to safeguard its future. It describes this as an exercised right to be represented, to be visible, and as a reaction to historical systems of memory, of archives and of record-keeping, in the “analogue” world, which have in the past silenced or suppressed marginalised voices and communities from and within the historical record. In addition, it highlights the problem of digital preservation in relation to community archives.
