The brand new Queer Britain Museum opened in May 2022, and its first exhibition is Welcome to Queer Britain.

Welcome to Queer Britain is a small, temporary collection of photographs and artifacts from the Queer Britain archive, curated by art, design and LGBTQ+ history curator for Historic Royal Palaces, Matthew Storey.

Welcome to Queer Britain is joined by artwork from the two winners of Queer Britain’s Madame Prize, Sadie Lee and Paul Harfleet (main image, a component of Birds Can Fly).

Matthew Storey told the press about the exhibition: “It has been amazing to follow the journey of Queer Britain from a first idea to the opening of the UK’s first museum dedicated to LGBTQ+ people. It has been an honour to curate the opening display that showcases Queer Britain’s achievements so far. I hope that the photographs chosen reflect the rich diversity of the LGBTQ+ community past and present, as we look to the future of this important new museum.”

On the announcement of the opening date for the new museum, Queer Britain director and co-founder, Joseph Galliano, said: “We are so proud to welcome people into Queer Britain’s space for the very first time. This represents a hugely important step, as the UK opens the doors of its own national LGBTQ+ museum; the start of something beautiful.”

The exhibition runs Wednesday to Sunday, 12pm – 6pm, until 4 July 2022.
