This two-day conference on 15-16 May 2018 will explore how heritage organisations can engage diverse audiences in debates surrounding LGBTQ history. It's part of our Prejudice and Pride programme of events marking 50 years since partial decriminalisation of homosexuality. Save the date now to attend.

Prejudice, Pride, Place takes place on 15-16 May 2018 at The Bond Warehouse in Birmingham.

The conference will ask: how heritage organisations meaningfully engage diverse audiences in debates surrounding LGBTQ history, culture and equality by researching and presenting past LGBTQ lives?

A rich mix of talks and debates, creative responses to queer heritage and live performances – as well as visits to Hanbury Hall and Wightwick Manor – offer participants the chance to explore LGBTQ heritage practice and the implications of sharing queer histories.

The event is led by the National Trust and the University of Leicester’s Research Centre for Museums and Galleries. It is part of our Prejudice and Pride programme marking 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality.

Tickets and more programme details will be available shortly on our website here.
