York Out of the Closet: 50 Years of LGBT

York Out of the Closet: 50 Years of LGBT

Castle Museum

A series of new displays transforms York Castle Museum’s 1960’s pub into an LGBT bar brimming with tales of love, struggle and pride in a new exhibition, York Out of the Closet: 50 Years of LGBT History.

Visitors can discover the stories of York’s first ever lesbian and gay protest march, the festival that brought two thousand lesbians to York racecourse, and many more.

This year marks 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of sex between men in England and Wales. We are the only museum in York to join hundreds of organisations throughout the UK in commemorating this anniversary.

The exhibition has been curated by a team of volunteers, including representatives of three York charities: York LGBT History Month, York Pride, and York LGBT Forum.
