Researching our LGBT collections

More themes coming soon

We will be adding new themes and objects as our Pride and Prejudice project develops.

The next two themes we will share soon are 'Love and relationships' and 'Sex and eroticism', so keep an eye on our social media @MuseumLiverpool@WalkerGallery and blog

This online collection brings fine and decorative artworks from National Museums Liverpool’s three Art Galleries, together with objects from the Museum of Liverpool’s collections to explore LGBT history and culture. 

‘LGBT’ is an acronym that summarises the main groups within the gay and transgender community. Specifically, it includes lesbian women, gay men, bisexual people of both genders and trans people. Trans is an umbrella term for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from the sex they were assigned at birth. 

This collection is a work in progress and forms a key element of our Pride and Prejudice research project.
