The UK’s First LGBTQ+ Museum

 | 
02/25/2022

For Joseph Galliano, Director of UK charity Queer Britain, museums signal what stories and communities we value. A new museum in London, dedicated to Britain’s LGBTQ+ history, will open in Spring 2022 and share the journey of a community whose history many had feared forgotten. In 2013, the United Nations Human Rights Office launched the UN Free and Equal initiative, a global campaign against homophobia and transphobia. More than a third of the world’s countries criminalize consensual, loving same-sex relationships, entrenching prejudice and putting millions of people at risk. While progress has been made in many countries to advance civil liberties and freedoms, promoting equal rights and fair treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people remains a global challenge.
