OutStories Bristol’s Revealing Stories exhibition at M Shed was visited 19 February by Maria Miller MP who is the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, and also Minister for Women and Equalities.

She had asked to see the exhibition after it was mentioned in the House of Commons by Bristol West MP Stephen Williams during the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill on 5 February.

Maria was welcomed by OutStories co-chair Cheryl Morgan and secretary Charlie Beaton. The Minister told them she was very supportive of OutStories’ achievements and spoke about how much she had been moved by the marriage equality debate.

With her were two senior officials from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Simon Timms (Chair, South West Region) and Richard Bellamy (Regional Manager, South West) who were very pleased with how we had used their money. Well done, team!
