On Thursday 13th, we celebrated LGBT History Month at Sutton House, Hackney, in an event to support the ‘Master-Mistress’ exhibition, which runs until 7th March. The event was called ‘Challenging Histories: what place do LGBTQ identities have in museums and historic houses’ and was so well attended that people had to sit on the window-sills in the beautiful Great Chamber.
The discussion raised many interesting ideas and questions, and we could have run for longer than we did- but hopefully we have peaked people’s interests for future events.
Below is the podcast of the evening, I’m hoping to put it on iTunes at some point- but it’s beyond my technical capabilities, so this will have to suffice for now.
I’d also like to thank again the four speakers for the event; Jan, Claire, Naomi and Oliver, and of course to the team at Sutton House for being such great hosts!
I hope this is a conversation that will continue amongst everyone who attended, and amongst other National Trust properties.
