Queering Spires: a history of Oxford's LGBTIQA+ spaces

Highlights from our award-winning exhibition, displayed in the Oxford Town Hall from September 2019 to March 2020 (and again, as a smaller display, in early 2022).

The exhibition was a partnership between the Museum of Oxford, Oxford Pride and a community heritage project, Tales of Our City.

It was curated by a steering group of Oxford citizens who identify as or with LGBTIQA+.

At the 2020 Museums and Heritage show, the exhibition won the Sustainable Project of the Year award, in recognition of our efforts to minimise the waste and carbon footprint associated with the exhibition.

LGBTIQA+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, queer, and asexual. The + sign represents many other groups and identities within the community.
