LGBTQIA+ BXL, Collecting memories

From 22.02.22 > 14.06.22

The Brussels City Archives and Museums held in 2021 a collection of objects relating to the history of LGBTQIA+* movements and cultures in our capital.

In their acquisition policy, the Museum and the Archives collect objects, archives that document contemporary phenomena. But what to collect? It is not always easy to identify what is worth preserving for the future. The capsule exhibition “LGBTQIA+ BXL” presents the most significant pieces of this collection.

These new acquisitions enrich the heritage and knowledge of the history of Brussels’ queer movement and cultures.

*Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Intersex and Asexual or Aromantic
