Behind the Scene – My story, my history - Brighton Museum & Art Gallery

Thursday 8th March 2018

FREE LGBT+ Heritage Discovery afternoon support


About this event:

Join the Heritage Lottery Fund to find out about celebrating lost, forgotten and untold LGBT+ histories, and how to access funding for LGBT+ heritage focused projects.

You’ll hear from different groups and organisations about their LGBT+ heritage projects, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), and how you can apply for HLF funding.

You’ll also have a special guided tour of two LGBT+ exhibitions at Brighton Museum – ‘The Museum of Transology’, a display of artefacts and photographs reflecting the experiences of trans people in Brighton & Hove and beyond; and ‘Gluck: Art and Identity’, exploring the life and work of 20th century artist Gluck, a trailblazer of gender fluidity.

At the end of the afternoon, join us for one of Queer in Brighton’s ‘History Club’ sessions at the Marlborough Pub, and a chance for some informal networking.
