Pride in Our City Project

Humber Museums Partnership - Pride in Our City Project

About the project

Here at Hull Museums we are dedicated to representing the diversity of our audiences and exploring our local heritage. We had noticed that we were not fully doing this for our LGBTQ+ visitors and we wanted to change that by increasing the LGBTQ+ narratives found in our interpretation, programming, and engagement.

We have been working on improving what we can provide as a service, by organising internal staff training, increasing our research into our collections, and looking at new ways of representing these histories. We are currently putting together a digital exhibition to celebrate Pride in Hull. This exhibition will be based on submissions from our audiences, highlighting their voices to showcase the importance of this wonderful annual event.
