Saturday 13th May 2017 – part of Exeter Pride!
13.30: Workshop for 14-15 year olds
How can objects from the past help us in our understanding of LGBT+ identities today? We invite people aged 14-18 to join us to discover queer objects from across thousands of years of history. Help us explore the connections between past and present and rethink questions of gender and sexual identity. Come and give your opinion and tell us which historical objects you would pick to get other young people talking about what it means to be LGBT+ today!
Academics at the University of Exeter together with sexual health charities are trying to work out how we can use fascinating artefacts from throughout world history in Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) in Devon schools and colleges.
