Queer people have impacted every part of culture, yet all too often their lives have been written in the margins of history books. Valuable stories and artefacts are being lost. Once gone, they may never be recovered. We are giving these a dedicated space to be preserved, explored and celebrated. Join us and let's make history!

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

WHAT IS QUEER BRITAIN?

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.
