Book now with Art Tickets

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’?

Date: 21st February 2024, 7-8 pm.

Please note: this is an online only event.

This event is part of LGBT+ History Month.
