Hastings Queer History Collective present an exhibition of personal objects related to their lives, and wider LGBTIQA+ narratives.
What object might you choose to illustrate your story?
The Hastings Queer History Collective was formed in early 2020 to explore and document the experiences of LGBTIQA+ individuals living in and around Hastings.
Working collaboratively with local organisations and specialists over six digital sessions they each identified individual objects in order to tell a story related to their lives, and wider LGBTIQA+ narratives
This work aims to enrich the social history collection in Hastings Museum and Art Gallery through a process of collecting tomorrow’s history today.
Videos made by the collective exploring the history of each object will also be available to view as part of the Pride window display in Debenhams, Hastings town centre from 17-30 August 2021.
More projects with the Hastings Queer History Collective are currently being planned, if you would like to join or find out more on how to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Produced by Hastings Museum & Art Gallery in partnership with Home Live Art, New Writing South and E-J Scott (Founder of the Museum of Transology).
