LGBTQ+ Social for Staff and Volunteers


Next social: Thursday 18 March at 3.00pm

On Zoom

For further information or to book email

In February, as part of LGBTQ+ History Month & Beyond, we held our first LGBTQ+ Social on Zoom which we hope will become a regular place for people to get together each month.

​Each month we will choose a museum object, artwork, short extract or short film as a starting point to share ideas - a bit like a reading group but with no requirement for preparation to be involved in the conversation.

This is open to all staff and volunteers from the Museum and the Whitworth, you do not have to identify as LGBTQ+ to take part, allies more than welcome too!

If you are interested in joining us, or would like to find out more, please drop an email to Peter:
