UK’s first LGBTQ museum to open in London this spring.


The UK’s first LGBTQ museum is due to open this spring in London, founded by the charity Queer Britain. The museum will be located on the ground floor of 2 Granary Square in Kings Cross in the building owned by the Art Fund charity. The space will house four galleries, a workshop, an education space, gift shop and offices. The new institution “celebrates the stories, people and places that are so intrinsic to the queer community in the UK, and beyond”, says a statement. The museum’s plans and programming schedules are due to be announced; crucially, there will be no admission fee. It will be funded through “all the usual channels: donations, retail, partnerships, trusts and foundations. Queer Britain is a fully registered charity,” says a spokesman for Queer Britain. Donors who contribute are sent a message, saying: “We are losing stories and artefacts every day and need a central space to examine, understand and celebrate our stories.”
