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.

Almost 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.
