Guest post: Conference report by Thomas Coenraadts

As a Bachelor of Cultural Heritage as well as a current Master student of World Heritage Studies, I have never encountered any sign of LGBTQ+ heritage in any of my studies. It’s as though at both Universities in Amsterdam and in Cottbus (Germany) they have never heard of LGBTQ+ heritage, despite both courses emphasising a focus on diversity and social and ethical issues. The lack of recognition for LGBTQ+ heritage made me want to research it for myself and consequentially I decided on a LGBTQ+ heritage topic for my Master’s dissertation. I am currently researching which LGBTQ+ heritage sites in Amsterdam could be protected and preserved as a City or National monument. I am doing this on behalf of the COC, the Dutch national LGBTQ+ rights advocacy organisation.

The ALMS conference “Without Borders” was incredibly inspiring for me. It showed me that despite a lack of attention at the Universities, it is more than made up for by the inspiring projects, and great enthusiasm from all the participants. I would like to thank each and every individual for their input and interesting stories, and also thank the organisation for giving me the opportunity to be inspired and encouraged even further to protect our experiences and our heritage!
