Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Network

Liverpool's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Network was launched in 2008 to bring together LGB&T individuals and voluntary organisations working with LGB&T people to provide a voice for the LGB&T communities in Liverpool.

The Network's aims, currently being drafted by the members, include:

Speaking for Ourselves: making sure the voices of the LGB&T communities are heard, working in partnership with local decision makers.

Supporting Ourselves: providing accurate, up-to-date advice and information about LGB&T services, news and events.

Being Ourselves: helping the LGB&T communities become more inclusive, more diverse, more visible - and proud.

The Network will be completely democratic. You will be able to have your say about the things that matter to you and discuss issues at our Open Meetings, which are held twice a year.

Liverpool's LGB&T Network will have a Chair and a Steering Group, selected by you, the members. You can also put yourself forward to be the Chair or a member of the Steering Group.

The Un-Straight Museum

Friday 13 and Saturday 14 June 2014 - Museum of Liverpool.

This international conference is organised by LGBT arts and social justice organisation Homotopia and National Museums Liverpool. The Un-straight Museum will explore the role of cultural institutions, curators, and archivists in representing marginalised communities and promoting diversity.

Taking place in the Museum of Liverpool, where ‘April Ashley: portrait of a lady’, a major exhibition exploring trans experience, has already been seen by more than 200,000 visitors, this conference will address the under-representation of LGBT heritage in mainstream public spaces. It will also showcase examples of ground-breaking work where hidden histories are being uncovered and presented.

With speakers from Sweden, Germany, United States and Finland as well as the Victoria and Albert Museum and Tate this two-day event is aimed at people working in the heritage and cultural sectors as well as researchers, academics and interested members of the LGBT community.

Price for delegates: £99 per person, includes lunch and refreshments on both days.
