Out and About!

Archiving LGBTQ+ history at Bishopsgate Institute

A pile of colourful badges celebrating LGBTQ+ individuals, collectives and organisations.

Bishopsgate Institute stage a take-over of The Curve with an archive installation of objects, ephemera and media highlighting 40 moments and stories in London’s LGBTQ+ history.

Bishopsgate Institute has been collecting the lived experiences of everyday people for over a century, and their unique special collections and archives present the stories of individuals, collectives and organisations who fought for social, political, and cultural change. 

This archive installation includes items documenting areas of pride, protest, performance and art; from the gay rights movement to the everyday celebrations and struggles of LGBTQ+ Londoners. 

The installation will be accompanied by a programme of informal talks and conversations hosted inside the gallery by the individuals whose stories are on display.

Under 14s should be accompanied by an adult
