At The Guide Liverpool, we’ve been helping businesses promote themselves and reach new clients and customers for years. Our professional video crew can help you increase engagement, interaction and revenue by presenting your business to a wide audience with a creative, exciting promotional video for use on multiple online channels.
This year’s theme is ‘Body, Mind, Spirit’ and NML has curated a special collection of exciting commissions online which document the history, lives and experiences of the community.
These exclusive works include insightful interviews and opinion pieces inspired by NML’s rich collections and commitment to sharing the experiences of Liverpool’s long and diverse LGBT+ history.
In addition to the online programme there will be a House of Suarez Vogue Ball dress on display in the window of the Museum of Liverpool from 25 January. This epic, sweeping gown and headpiece were specially commissioned for Liverpool River Festival in 2019 and the design was inspired by Liverpool’s seafaring history. The dress then went on to strut its stuff in the House of Suarez Vogue Ball, where the fiercest voguers and performers battled it out in an underwater themed spectacular.

Matt Exley, Learning and Participation Manager and Co-Chair of NML’s LGBT+ Staff Network said: “A journey through Liverpool’s LGBT+ history – from gay life at sea and in port to the modern gay quarter round Stanley Street – is both rewarding and fascinating.

“We are particularly excited to be able to showcase a series of contributions from members of Liverpool’s LGBT+ community, responding artistically to the important people, places, and events in their lives. We are also proud to be working closely with GYRO (Gay Youth R Out), the UK’s oldest LGBT+ youth group, on a project to explore activism and capture their hopes for the future.”
This celebration of LGBT+ History month is part of National Museums Liverpool’s wider commitment to human rights, social justice and equality for all, and is one of the most important events in our calendar. We hope that by uncovering the wealth of objects in our collections that reflect LGBT+ lives, histories and culture, we can help to make these stories more widely known.
LGBT+ History month, organised by Schools OUT UK – The LGBT+ Education Charity, takes place every February and aims to educate and promote equality and diversity.
