V&A

From mermaid dishware to toy building blocks, the Science Museum Group’s collections are a rich source of material for uncovering hidden queer histories. Laura Bullesbach and Rebecca Mellor are assistant curators and co-founders of the Science Museum London’s Gender and Sexuality Network. Together, they are unpicking these hidden stories to share with visitors.

In this session, Rebecca and Laura will give you the tools to examine queer experiences and representation in new, exciting, and previously untold ways.
