Queer Kernow

Queer History is Cornish History.

Queer people have always existed, in Cornwall, in the UK, and throughout history. Our objective is to promote the acceptance of LGBTQ history in Cornwall. We would like to share previously hidden or overlooked queer narratives within Cornish history. We aim to engage with the contemporary LGBTQ community and share their stories to create an ongoing legacy of queer history in Cornwall, from prehistory to the present day.

Working with the Cornwall Museums partnership has allowed this project unique access into the collections of Cornish Museums, join the conversation as we delve into archives and storerooms to bring you the stories of Cornwalls LGBTQ past. 

If you would like to contribute to the project by submitting a story or object, we would love to hear from you – please email hello@queerkernow.co.uk
