Pride and Prejudice - LGBT+ research project

pride-prejudice-logo-286In our exciting project, ‘Pride & Prejudice’, we have been researching our urban history collections at the Museum of Liverpool, and our fine and decorative art collections at the Walker Art Gallery, Lady Lever Art Gallery and Sudley House, in order to identify items with an LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans) connection. View the  glossary of phrases, acronyms and language we're using. 

National Museums Liverpool is dedicated to exhibiting all aspects of culture while tackling social, historical and contemporary issues. We have a strong commitment to human rights, social justice and equality for all. The representation and contribution LGBT+ people have made to society over a long period of time has been largely misinterpreted or omitted. We hope that by uncovering the wealth of objects in our collections that reflect LGBT+ lives, histories and culture, we can help to make these stories more widely known and present them better to the public in accessible online collections.
