You are invited to attend this international conference organised by the LGBT arts and social justice organisation Homotopia and National Museums Liverpool. The Un-straight Museum will explore the role of cultural institutions, curators, and archivists in representing marginalised communities and promoting diversity.
Taking place in the Museum of Liverpool where the major exhibition exploring Trans* experience, ‘April Ashley: portrait of a lady’ has already been seen by more than 200,000 visitors, this conference will address the under-representation of LGBT heritage in mainstream public spaces. It will also showcase examples of ground-breaking work where hidden histories are being uncovered and presented.
With speakers from Sweden, Germany, United States and Finland as well as the Victoria & Albert Museum and Tate this two-day event is aimed at people working in the heritage and cultural sectors as well as researchers, academics and interested members of the LGBT community.
