Visit the UK’s first LGBT+ museum and celebrate queer people throughout history.
As LGBT+ month is underway a tour of London’s first Queer museum, Queer Britain, is a great way to start conversations about diversity, inclusion and difference. Children can hear stories and explore artefacts from the LGBTQ+ community’s rich history and find out more about queer culture.
After four years in waiting, Queer Britain has finally opened hosting the UK’s first LGBTQ+ museum. The space and exhibitions are family-friendly with the ethos of being welcoming for everyone.
Until July 4, there is a temporary display Welcome to Queer Britain, which highlights the charity’s mission and showcases a range of photos and artwork from their archives.
You can always combine the trip with a visit to the area’s other family attractions for a great day out. From fountain splashing to nature trails, King’s Cross is largely traffic free and easy to navigate with lots to keep all ages busy. Find out more here.
What the founders of Queer Britain say:
“We are the UK’s first national LGBTQ+ museum, a place as exciting as the people, stories and ideas it explores and celebrates. It is 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. We’re helping complete the Nation’s family tree.”
