About the event
Join us as we celebrate the opening of our latest exhibition with Pride 2024.
Drawing on our collection of film and related ephemera, this exhibition takes a look at the history and future of lesbian sapphic cinema. Seeing ourselves on the big screen is a powerful and identity-affirming experience and a lifeline to many. Let's celebrate our stories together this month!
For the month of February we will have a large screen for viewing in the main gallery space, a TV screening a selection of content in the exhibition room and in the library a TV available for your own choose! You can select a film or TV show from our collections of VHS tapes and DVDs to watch.
There will be a full schedule available on our website, via email and in the event listings from Saturday 26 January showing what's on at what time.
What: come and check out our latest exhibition. There will be comfortable chairs and video playing, a few short speeches with an overall casual vibe.
The museum is safe inclusive space for Rainbow+ Communities and all are welcome to attend.
