Queering the History Museum Symposium

Queering the Museum (QTM) is pleased to announce the second installment in the QTM annual symposium series exploring exploring representations of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer peoples in museums.

On June 8, 2013 we will converge on the campus of the Museum of History and Industry for an full day of Queer sessions. Our goal is to address the role that museums play in forming social norms around gender, race and sexuality.  The QTM project works collaboratively with community members and organizations, facilitating and connecting projects that further these goals.

We are please to announce that The Pop Up Museum of Queer History will be joining us at the symposium to lead a conversation about their work in New York, as well as how Queer history has been explored and documented over the years. A more detailed program is available here.

Finally, we are excited to host a reception following the symposium on board the Virginia V steamship. The Virginia V will be docked on South Lake Union for us to relax, ask for a few lingering questions and meet all the people who have helped make this symposium possible.

Thank you to our sponsors Humanities Washington, The Kitchen Sink Project, Hilliard’s Brewery, Captain Smartypants: A Seattle Mens Chorus Ensemble, the Museum of History and Industry and our Community Advisory Committee!
