As London hubs for LGBT History Month we are proud to host our second OUTing the Past evening of speakers talking about LGBTQ+ lives, histories and experiences.

This year join us to hear from four incredible speakers who will be focusing on LGBTQ+ experiences around the world.

  • Curator Claire Warrior will be introducing the evening with a talk about gender and our collection at the National Maritime Museum.
  • Cheryl Morgan has been researching the history behind the Amazons. Was there more to these all female warriors than meets the eye?
  • Caroline Paige will be talking about her own experiences as a transgender member of the British airforce and the situation of transgender rights in the armed forces globally.
  • Paul Dillane is passionate about the treatment of LGBTQ+ refugees and the impact our foreign and social policies have on asylum seekers. 
  • Max Carocci will be presenting ‘Objects that Talk: Native American Art and (Trans)Gender Roles’ exploring transgender life and visual culture in North American cultures from the past to the present day.
