It’s pretty shocking that with all the museums and cultural institutions we have in this country that not one of them is dedicated to LGBTQ+ history. That’s what charity Queer Britain has been working to address and they’ve succeeded, as the doors to the nation’s first LGBTQ+ museum are opening in King’s Cross this May. It’s taken four years to find the location, which is a fully-accessible, inclusive and free-entry space in Granary Square that “will be an essential place for all regardless of sexuality or gender identity, to find out about the culture they have been born into, have chosen or seek to understand.”
The first exhibition to open in the museum will be Welcome To Queer Britain, a temporary display curated by Matthew Storey, who has pulled together pieces from the Queer Britain photographic collection and previous exhibitions alongside portraits by Allie Crewe, Robert Taylor and Sadie Lee. Defo one to check out next time you’re round King’s Cross way.
