Queer at Sea: Tales from the 2SLGBTQ+ Community


This new exhibit at the Maritime Museum of BC opens on May 17, 2022 and runs through the the summer. Queer and trans communities have long been a part of BC’s maritime history and culture. This exhibit will showcase those histories and culture, celebrate the roles and contributions queer and trans people have made to BC’s maritime sectors, and will acknowledge work that remains to eliminate discrimination against the 2SLGBTQ+ community in the marine sectors. The Museum is seeking input from queer and trans individuals who are willing to voluntarily share their stories for use in the exhibit. The deadline for sharing your story is March 4.
