Queer Antiquities Trail

Queer Antiquities Trail

1st February - 28 February 2018

This is a Cambridgeshire LGBTQ History Month event

 

We don't know what really went on between the sheets in the ancient world - but join us this LGBTQ History Month for a trail around the diverse histories of sexual identity and identification in Greece and Rome. From Greek love to Roman invective, from imperial toyboys to post-antique titillation: we explore ancient same-sex sexualities and their reception in our atmospheric Cast Gallery.

Pick up a trail from the front desk and find your way around the naked truth of sex in the ancient past.

**From Tuesday 13th February, the trail will include the work Hermaphrodite (2018) by Clare Yarrington.**

The trail and interpretation panels are available in large print versions. Please ask at the front desk.

 

LGBTQ History Month takes place every February, and promotes equality and diversity by increasing the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people, their history, lives and experience, as well as raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBTQ community.

With thanks to Colin Clews.

Cambridgeshire LGBTQ History Month is organised by the Encompass Network.
