Bridging Binaries LGBTQ+ Tour

27 April 2024
11:00-12:00
Free to all

From queens, emperors and divine beings, to scientists, artists and global communities, explore the spectrum of identities that exist across time, place and culture in the Museum of Classical Archaeology.

Same-sex desire does not need modern labels and categories in order to exist across time.

From goddesses and ancient myths to powerful emperors explore the spectrum of identities that exist across time, place and culture in amongst the statues and sculptures of the atmospheric Cast Gallery at the Museum of Classical Archaeology.

Volunteer guides share their personal selection of fascinating stories which challenge binary approaches to gender and sexual identity through a range of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-related objects related to Ancient Greece and Rome.
