Finding LGBTQ Voices in History
Bucks County Museum is very proud to be working with Buckinghamshire Archives and Buckinghamshire Council to present our first LGBTQ history month online programme for our LGBTQ communities and all our straight allies called Missing Stories – Finding LGBTQ Voices in History. Sue Shave, Museum Director of Bucks Museum will be presenting some of the LGBTQ community objects and stories collected at the Museum’s PRIDE events in 2019 and 2018. County Archivist Daniel Williams and Community Engagement Officer Katherine Gwynne will be telling us all about stories from other archives and a fascinating local story about 2 local doctors who lived and worked together, one of whom was the daughter of the famous pioneer female doctor Elizabeth Garrett Anderson.
Sue Shave, Museum Director said “the Museum is very proud to be making our LGBTQ communities visible in this way and highlighting their stories and contribution to the world with local and national stories. We are delighted to be working in partnership with Buckinghamshire Archives to showcase LGBTQ lives and histories and hope that our local community will continue to contribute their stories and donate objects to the Museums and archives”
