OUT IN OXFORD

The Ashmolean (along with six other collections) is proud to be participating in this cross collections trail. 

This trail is the result of ‘Celebrating Diversity’, a project funded by Arts Council England via the Oxford University Museums Partnership and created with the LGBTQ+ community. Nearly fifty volunteers who identify as LGBTQ+ or are allies have been involved writing the interpretations and co-curating the trail’s launch events. Through these interpretations we strive to celebrate diversity and highlight LGBTQ+ experiences. The items included have been identified with the help of staff from each collection represented. Through Out in Oxford, we hope to offer alternative insights into our shared, queer heritage. - Beth Asbury, Project Manager.
