The podcasts are part of a wider research project, LamQ+, which aims to understand the lockdown experiences of Black, Asian and/or other minoritised LGBTQI+ communities.

London Met's Donna Jones, Head of Social Work, has launched a series of six podcasts as part of her a major research project exploring the experiences of Lambeth's Black, Asian and/or other minoritised LGBTQI+ communities during Covid.
The Photovoice Podcast Series, LamQ+ Podcast: Queer POC Voices from Lockdown, is the dissemination of the knowledge generated by co-researchers. Hosted by Donna, the podcast centres oral traditions as a decolonised approach, co-researchers discuss the emerging themes of the research in their own words.
The podcast series accompanies the Our Collective Voice Photovoice exhibition specifically representing the lockdown experiences of Black, Asian and/or other minoritised LGBTQI+ communities through photographs.
The wider research project that accompanies both podcast and exhibition, LamQ+, was funded by London Metropolitan University's Transformation Fund, and developed in collaboration with Lambeth Council and an advisory group of local LGBTQI+ organisations. Together, they looked at the experiences of lockdown of LGBTQI+ communities in Lambeth.
Our Collective Voice is the original work of 11 Photovoice Co-Researchers from Lambeth and other boroughs, designed to develop new understandings of the experiences and needs of under-represented communities in previous studies, allowing complex, transformational counterstories to emerge, be honoured and to ensure greater diversity within the research project.
