The Museum of the Home to create a queer home in their galleries.

As LGBTQ+ History Month draws to a close, the Museum of the Home is close to concluding its first Art Happens crowdfunding campaign to help uncover stories of queer domesticity and create a queer home in their galleries.

The campaign hopes to raise £10k to acquire the objects needed to create new room sets, exploring making and finding a home in London in the 2000s. With just a couple of thousand pounds needed to reach their target, it would be wonderful if we could help them achieve their goal by the 4th March.

The 2000s room, co-curated by community members, weaves together stories of movement, making home and finding family in the new millennium. It will show an ex-council flat bedroom and bathroom in Hackney – exploring how queer people have shaped their homes this century. The crowdfunder is a brilliant opportunity to preserve queer people’s stories of the noughties, which risk being lost to time.
