From 2015-2016 Royal Pavilions & Museums worked in partnership with Allsorts Youth Project, a local organisation that supports and empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or unsure (LGBTU) children and young people. This collaboration resulted in a new LGBTQ display in the Images of Brighton gallery at Brighton Museum.
Young people aged 11-15 years old explored the museum’s collection and selected objects with an LGBTQ connection for display. As part of this project the group created this film exploring of key moments in LGBTQ local and national history, which can also be seen in the display.
