An online Zoom LGBTQ tour of the British Museum, revealing LGBTQ history and culture across the ages.

On this virtual, online Zoom tour we will be exploring 10 LGBTQ related objects in the museum's collection that give an overview of queer history. We will look at the objects in depth to understand how LGBTQ lives have been a part of all cultures celebrated in the museum and how their stories have come down through the ages, and what this means for LGBTQ people today.

Join museum educator and LGBTQ historian Jack Shoulder on an hour long Zoom tour as he shares these histories and discusses some of the museum's most well-known objects with some surprised along the way. We will see:

Hadrian and Antinous: and we will discuss how they have become the poster boys for LGBTQ history

The world-famous Rosetta Stone (the key to deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphics) and its queer connections

An LGBTQ object that's about 11,000 years old

And a whole lot more!

The history of the world is much queer than you might have thought.
