Queer Britain will create an inclusive museum space that celebrates the queer community‘s stories, people and places.
Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art, has announced that Queer Britain is opening the UK’s first national LGBTQ+ museum at Art Fund’s building in Granary Square, London.
Queer Britain, a registered charity established in 2018, will create an inclusive museum space that celebrates the queer community’s stories, people and places. The venue will welcome everyone, regardless of sexuality or gender identity.
The museum will be housed on the ground floor of 2 Granary Square, part of the building owned by Art Fund. The lease starts this month, with Queer Britain aiming to open the new museum in spring 2022.
“We’re delighted to welcome Queer Britain as our new tenants,” said Jenny Waldman, Art Fund director. “Their exciting proposal for the first UK museum dedicated to exploring LGBTQ+ histories, people and ideas was warmly supported by our trustees, and we’re thrilled that our beautiful building in Granary Square will be home for the first phase of the Queer Britain museum.”
