Expressing Sex: An Informal Workshop for Young People (16-25)

10th February 2018 @ 14:00 - 16:00

Please note this is an informal drop in session, so come anytime between 2 and 4pm!

Location: M Shed Studio Rooms

Part of LGBT History Month Bristol, hosted by M Shed, organised by Outstories, Bristol

How did people in the past express their sexuality and gender? What can a photograph from the nineteenth century, scientific data from the 1900s, a statue from the ancient world, or a novel written by someone in the 1920s tell us about sexuality and gender in the past? How did people living decades and centuries ago make sense of their own “identities”? How do people today think and speak about sexuality and gender, and how might looking to history help us to express ourselves now?

Come and join historians, literary scholars and sexual health experts to explore objects, photos, memoirs, films and fiction, and find out more about the history of identity, gender, sexuality and science.

Everyone aged 16-25 is welcome, whether or not you identify as LGBT+.

For more information and to register your attendance for this workshop please contact:

Or just drop in on the day!


This session was developed with young people and staff from Off the Record, Bath and North East Somerset and is run by researchers from the University of Exeter (Dr Jen Grove, Dr Ina Linge and Dr Jana Funke) affiliated with the Rethinking Sexology and Sex & History projects.
