We’re delighted to have been awarded a ‘Level-Up’ grant by the SE Museums Development team for a project exploring our collections for LGBTQ stories.
Over the last year we have been working with people who identify as LGBTQ to put together trails for our visitors around the galleries and to capture their responses. Unfortunately, due to the Covid pandemic, it has meant that we have been unable to work as closely with our fab partners to work on other activities shaped by their responses to the project. In the meantime, we hope you can virtually enjoy the work so far with responses from our partners and curators to items within our collections.
We hope that those who follow the trail will be encouraged to think about how gender and sexuality have been perceived throughout history and within different cultures, and how they are interpreted today.
