Exhibition on city's gay scene in the past

A great place to start your re-think is at Pride In Our Past.

The exhibition is based on new research into the city's LGBT communities and includes personal stories, objects, photographs and more.
It spans three centuries and captures the heart of the changing 'scene' over the decades, as well as the political struggle both past and present. The story includes oppression and expression, love and murder. The artwork on show includes a Robert Lenkiewicz painting of a gay couple and a Beryl Cook scene of the bar at the Lockyer Hotel, a favourite haunt.
The show is produced by the Plymouth Pride Forum and supported by the Plymouth and West Devon Record Office and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The museum is open 10am-5.30pm today and 10am-5pm tomorrow.
