Take an LGBTQ look at the Harris...

Every month the Harris invite people from the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) community to join them for an early evening get-together to talk about and explore the Harris collections.

The group currently meet on the second Wednesday of each month. It's a really informal and friendly group. They are currently producing a trail of objects in the Harris collections which members of the group are interpreting from a personal, LGBTQ perspective. No experience of talking about art required!

The group starts by having a chat then often take a look around the Harris – both in its galleries and using digital resources to explore objects in our stores. They think about objects which allow us to explore issues of gender, sexuality and identity, and how we can unearth previously hidden (or ignored) LGBTQ stories.
