Administrative history

The Lesbians and Policing Project (Lespop) was a project developed from the Gay London Police Monitoring Group (GALOP) in 1985 in order to support lesbians in relation to the abuse faced from the police. Based in London they offered workshops and phone-line services often focusing on how race and disability intersected with sexuality to influence treatment of lesbians by the police. Their advice focussed on how to deal with police raids, tactics for demonstrations, legal advice, and information on Section 28. Lespop also sought to research treatment of Lesbians by the police by working with lesbians in London.
