IMAGE COURTESY OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND
Join Queer Britain for an online event on 8 July at 6pm to celebrate the Bank of England's new £50 note, which features an image of the code-breaking gay scientist, Alan Turing. Our discussion is led by Dr. Dominic Galliano, Head of Public Engagement from UCL, and features: Sarah John, the Chief Cashier of the Bank of England; Josh Little, the lawyer who led the Allen & Overy team advising Stonewall on 2017's gross indecency 'Turing Law' pardons and the Quantum Scientist, Dr. Alex Moylett. The audience will also be privy to a special announcement from the Bank of England.
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. These deserve a dedicated space to be preserved, explored and celebrated. Queer Britain will put this centre stage. Join us and let's make history!
A charity working to establish the UK’s first national LGBTQ+ museum, a place as exciting as the people, stories and ideas it explores and celebrates. It 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. It will help complete the Nation’s family tree.
