Proud! Telling LGBT+ stories in Sheffield

© Andy Brown

Museums Sheffield cares for collections that tell the story of the city from prehistory right through to the present day, but we know there are some stories the collections could tell better. The experiences of Sheffield’s LGBT+ communities are currently underrepresented in the city’s collections and we want to change that.

Later this year we’ll be unveiling two new news displays, one at Weston Park Museum showcasing some of Sheffield’s remarkable LGBT+ stories, and one at Millennium Gallery celebrating a true Sheffield hero, the activist and rights campaigner, Edward Carpenter.

We’re looking to work with members of LGBT+ communities across Sheffield to create the displays and also help develop the museum collections to better represent our fantastic, diverse city. If you’re LGBT+ and are interested in being involved, come along to Weston Park Museum on Saturday 23 March ,11am-1pm to meet the team and find out more!
