A great way to learn about LGBTQ+ : Visit the LGBTQ+ History Museum

In February, as LGBTQ+ History Month, Cardiff also opened a local LGBTQ+ history museum to let more people know about its history.

Cardiff has a long history with the LGBTQ+ community, dating back to the 9th century AD, when Cardiff established laws for LGBTQ+ people to ensure their legal inheritance.

“This is not the first year we’ve had an LGBTQ+ museum, and in fact we’ve been insisting that if we can, we want to collect more exhibits and open pavilions in different places.” Mark, organiser of the Cardiff LGBTQ+ History Month Museum said that.

Last Saturday, Cardiff organized the LGBTQ+ History Month Museum exhibition, which showcases many of the various organizational activities of LGBTQ+ groups in recent decades to fight against abuses and defend their human rights, and each of the exhibits represents a typical human rights movement.

Mark, organizer of the Cardiff LGBTQ+ History Month Museum, said: “A lot of the collection is about struggle and rights, but sadly we also miss a lot of meaningful exhibits. Around 1967, homosexuality was legalized and people were very angry about it, so many meaningful photographs and memorabilia were destroyed. So most of what we have in the gallery is from 1971 onwards, when there was an increase in gay movement in Cardiff.”

“The emblem below is of great significance, being the organizational emblem of the 1976 Gay Pride Parade in London. It is considered an iconic movement of LGBTQ+ activism, as it influenced other cities in the UK to take LGBTQ+ seriously, and at the same year, Cardiff also launched a private gay bar under the influence of the new culture. If these things are not shown, then people will not know how much resistance and disregard for human rights a new culture will experience when it rises.”

Leno, a visitor to the LGBTQ+ museum, also said: “Until now, there are still many people who face violence, discrimination and even torture because of their identity and loved ones, we need to be known by more people that we are also human beings, we love and love ourselves equally, and we should not suffer because of deviation from public cognition, tolerance and equality is the creed of this world.”

LGBTQ+ History Month not only calls for more people to take a serious look at the community, but also for more people to respect and understand the birth of a new culture. Cardiff University has also launched a campaign to mark LGBTQ+ History Month with a competition on Wednesday for managers of the Cardiff LGBTQ+ organisation, which aims to ensure equal human rights.

LGBTQ+ History Month allows more people of special groups to see the dawn of human rights equality, where there is oppression, there will be resistance, LGBTQ+ groups with their own actions in February bloom the most brilliant color. At present, being able to truly know themselves and fight for what they like has deeply influenced millennials, and it also calls on more people to pay attention to human rights equality and individual rights.
