A Queer History Club event

Join members of the team behind the 'Forgotten Battles: Gender in the Armouries' project to discover the hidden queer histories within the Royal Armouries Museum - and get your hands on some objects from the collection! Created by local queer people, 'Forgotten Battles' is a trail and exhibition (on display until November) which reclaims the Royal Armouries as a queer space, revealing hidden stories of gender within the museum.

Queer History Club brings you the inside story of the project and the histories behind it, as well as a chance to get up close and personal with some of the Armouries' queerest objects.

Wednesday 24th April 6:30-8:30pm
at The Bookish Type, 77a Great George Street LS1 3BR
