These iconic people are just some of the many influential figures connected to our LGBT+ collections.
They include LGBT+ individuals from the city who have made significant contributions to society. We have also picked out several LGBT+ artists and designers, from across the globe, who have made significant contributions to cultural heritage and whose life stories have resonated with contemporary LGBT+ communities. Others are historical figures that feature prominently in objects within our collections and have been widely embraced by LGBT+ people.
Some identified as LGBT+ within their lifetimes, others didn’t, or couldn’t, and are only now being celebrated and recognised.
More icons will be added as we continue to research our collections.
