Join us for the opening night of Tales from the city, a new exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act. This powerful exhibition explores stories from Liverpool’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT+) community from 1967 to 2017.

Everyone is welcome to this free event - please join us to celebrate, bring your friends and family and be the first to see this incredible exhibition.

Tales from the city will be opened at 6.30pm by Cllr Gary Millar, who was Lord Mayor of Liverpool from 2013 to 14.

The evening will be introduced by Lady Seanne and entertainment will be provided by Sonic Yootha with an eclectic mix of new wave, old rave, techno, electro, rock, pop and soul social. You can also get your face painted. A pay bar will be available.

The exhibition brings together often hidden voices, personal items, shared memories and official documents that reflect how the lives and experiences of Liverpool’s LGBT+ community have changed over the last five decades.

This event is kindly supported by Unison.

Delivered by the Museum of Liverpool in partnership with Homotopia.

This event is part of our Tales from the city event series.
