The Feminist Approaches to Youth Sexualities site will be of particular interest to researchers working on gender and sexuality, Manchester youth culture, London youth cultures, sex education, queer identity, AIDS, sexual health and sexual practices, feminist sociology, and research, among others.

The site brings together a number of collections. It includes the Women, Risk and Aids Project (1989-90) collection of over 150 interviews with young women in Manchester and London. It also includes a collection created by the Reanimating Data Project(2018-2022) and a live collection  where you can contribute your own material. Our curated exhibitions and experiments bring together interview data, images and other material to explore various themes to show how the material has been used creatively. We hope researchers, students, youth workers, teachers, and young people will find the collections engaging, thought-provoking, and a springboard to new explorations and projects.You can browse the collections, use the search function,or explore our exhibition pagesand experiments. If you want to add to the collection please get in touch or see our contributor page. Watch a short introductory film here.
