OutStories Bristol Revealing Stories exhibition at Bristol’s M Shed museum was launched by the Lord Mayor of Bristol, Cllr. Peter Main, on 2 February 2013.
About 200 invited guests attended – OutStories Bristol volunteers, representatives from Bristol’s museums and archives, teachers and students from four Bristol schools that had participated in education projects, and others who had assisted with the exhibition or made loans.
The event opened with songs from Bristol’s LGBT choir Sing Out Bristol and then guests were welcomed to M Shed by Tim Corum, Deputy Head, Bristol Museums and Galleries at Bristol City Council. After opening speeches by OutStories Bristol co-chairs Andy Foyle and Cheryl Morgan, the Lord Mayor spoke of the importance of the event for him as a gay man and cut a ribbon to open the exhibition.
The exhibition runs at M Shed until Sunday 3 March.
