The Project

The Rites & Passages of LGBTQI migrants in Britain

Rainbow Pilgrims is a landmark project that discovers the hidden history of LGBTQI migrants in the UK past and present. The project intends to cover the period from the first Jewish Kindertransports to Britain (1938-1940) to today.

Supported by The National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and hosted by Liberal Judaism (LJ).

Rainbow Pilgrims explores the narratives around ‘rites and passages’, documenting the interconnection between faith, sexuality, gender and ethnicity by using oral history, film and photography. Rainbow Pilgrims culminates in a touring exhibition with pop-up events, a symposium, cutting-edge learning tools and an archive collection.

This collection will be the first source of LGBT and migration in a faith context in Britain.
