British Museum

'Desire, Love, Identity'

Exploring LGBTQ Histories

At The British Museum until the 15th October


This display at the British Museum looks at LGBTQ histories, experiences and lives by examining objects from around the world, covering ancient civilisations up to the present day.

Like other museums and art galleries the British Museum is marking the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Sexual Offences Act. This moment is charted in the display with campaign badges that show how equality has been promoted and highlighted over time.

Coins, prints and small sculptures represent past and recent expressions of same-sex desire, love and identity.

The exhibition is free, more information can be found at: http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on.aspx
