Queerspace is the result of a group of activists getting together to address the need for a safe ‘community’ space for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people. It was formed in 1998 and is run by volunteers through collective meetings. It encourages people to organise events and activities. Always changing and evolving as people come and go, Queerspace remains one of the most welcoming and innovative LGBT organisations in Belfast.
Come along to the Learning Zone in the Ulster Museum on 11 August between 1-4pm to learn more about the history of Queerspace and key events in LGBT history more broadly. There will be a number of pop up and photographic displays and members of the collective will be providing information on some of the events and activities you can get involved with. A range of speakers will present short talks throughout the afternoon covering some of the issues facing the LGBT community today.
