‘That which never can be suppressed’: LGBTQ+ history in the RCP collections

Header image for Title

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 21st Feb 2024

 Free

This is an online video event, please check the organiser for details about how to watch.

Explore how the lives of LGBTQ+ people, and attitudes to sexual and gender diversity, are reflected in the archive, heritage library and museum collections of the Royal College of Physicians.

LGBTQ+ stories can be traced back at least 350 years in our collections and cover the experiences of LGBTQ+ people, including physicians, as well as the views of a society that medicalised them. What contributions did physicians make to the Wolfenden Report? Which RCP licentiate lived with his male partner and was a leading figure in the Pan-Africanist movement? Who was Dorothy Hare’s ‘inseparable’ companion? And when did two medical students from Cambridge embark on an ‘unbroken marriage of souls’?

Join us for a lively virtual event exploring some fascinating and potentially challenging collections highlighting the long, rich and inspiring history of LGBTQ+ lives.

Please note: this is an online only event.

This event is part of LGBT+ History Month.
