Hosted by the Queer Heritage Collections Network’s Dan Vo, who also founded the award winning volunteer-led LGBTQ Tours at the V&A, Dan will be joined by guests from the Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall, and Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). Together they will present exciting projects, and the people behind them, that focus on LGBTQ+ audiences, histories and research.

Speakers:

  • Liz Harper, Archive Manager at the Royal Albert Hall, who will share the Royal Albert Hall’s historic role in providing London’s LGBT+ communities with a safe space.
  • Aydan Greatrick is a Project Officer on the Pride in the Field project with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), exploring how fieldwork can be made to be more inclusive and safe for LGBTQ+ researchers.
  • Florence Okoye is a user researcher and user experience designer at the Natural History Museum. Her work explores how creative methods can be used to understand people's perceptions of natural history and how participatory approaches can both engage and reveal untold stories.
