Join the Science Museum in marking 50 years of Pride at a special adults-only after-hours Pride Lates. This month’s Lates event will feature up and coming drag artists, workshops, Q&As and talks with speakers from the LGBTQ+ community.

General admission tickets are FREE and timeslots start from 18.45. VIP tickets are £10, with early entry timeslots starting from 18.30, and include a free drink as well as 15% off in the museum shop on the night.

Kicking off proceedings in suitably fabulous fashion will be drag dynamite duo Adam All and Apple Derrieres – who can usually be found hosting the renowned cabaret show BOiBOX. Throughout Lates visitors will be treated to performances from a whole host of cabaret and burlesque drag artists, including Romeo De La Cruz, Dolly Trolley and Kim Moan Ho.

In the museum’s IMAX: The Ronson Theatre, a special viewing of the newly released feature-length documentary George Michael Freedom Uncut will be shown. George was heavily involved in the making of the documentary before he passed away in 2016, speaking openly about his music career and private life alongside never-before-seen footage.

In Seeing things Queerly visitors can also learn all about the fascinating objects in our collection on a self-led trail through the museum to explore the history behind queer objects on display.

Grab a headset and step into Exploring Space for a drop-in silent disco where gal-dem columnist and DJ Aisha Mirza will be playing a set, test your knowledge in our Pride Pub Quiz or join us in the Drag Zone to get yourself made up and mingle with artists.

The museum’s interactive workshops and compelling Q&As will offer the opportunity for visitors to delve into a variety of LGBTQ+ topics. After recognising a steep decrease in LGBTQ+ spaces over the years, join panellists in Why do we need queer spaces? to discuss why queer spaces are so important and what can be done to combat the decline; a Q&A with the lead researcher for the European AIDS Vaccine Initiative, Robin Shattock will explore the latest HIV developments and successes in human clinical trials; and hear stories from the LGBTQ+ community from the past 50 years as recorded by Haringey Vanguard and National HIV Stories Trust.
