This event brings together a panel of researchers and heritage professionals who have explored in their work LGBT narratives, identities and representation. The year 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality and the year has been marked with celebrations in various media and formats to raise the profile of the 1967 sexual offences act. At this lunchtime discussion, the panel will talk about the representation and inclusion of LGBTQ+ narratives in museums and spaces, including the National Trust, theories of sexuality and gender, as well as the historical and current treatment of the LGBT community, particularly in modern Russia.
