From queens, emperors and divine beings, to scientists, artists and global communities, explore the spectrum of identities that exist across time, place and culture in Cambridge collections.

How do labels and categories affect the stories we choose to tell, or how we connect with each other? How do they affect our interaction with our natural world, and how we imagine the future?

With tours running across seven museums, our volunteer guides share their personal selection of fascinating stories about gender and sexual identity through a range of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-related objects.

 

Bridging Binaries at the Museum of Classical Archaeology

From goddesses and ancient myths to powerful emperors explore the spectrum of identities that exist across time, place and culture in amongst the statues and sculptures of the atmospheric Cast Gallery at the Museum of Classical Archaeology.

Volunteer guides share their personal selection of fascinating stories which challenge binary approaches to gender and sexual identity through a range of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-related objects related to Ancient Greece and Rome.

Tours are free. Booking is essential.
