International Day against Homophobia

17 May 2014 by Kay

Copy of DSC_0767Today is International Day against Homophobia. It marks the day in 1990 when the World Health Organisation took homosexuality off its list of mental illnesses. This rainbow flag, which was the first ever to be flown above Liverpool Town Hall for International Day against Homophobia on 17 May 2009, is on display in The People’s Republic gallery, Museum of Liverpool. The flag, along with other objects, images and personal stories help to represent Liverpool’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans communities in our collections and displays. We would really like to increase this representation. If you have any items that tell your own personal story or the story of Liverpool’s LGBT communities, which you would like to donate to the Museum of Liverpool we would be delighted to hear from you. The contact us page on the website has details of how to get in touch.
