Out in the Museum

This is the section for the V&A’s LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) Working Group. We are Museum staff with an interest in using the collections to explore issues of gender, sexuality and identity. Through research, discussion and public programming we aim to open up the diverse histories of objects and encourage consideration of LGBTQ subjects. We organise a range of LGBTQ-focused events and activities throughout the year, including gallery talks, film screenings and artist performances. Here we will share our research, thoughts, discoveries and various goings-on.
