The Michelangelo Trail: A Delve into LGBTQ+ Histories

Explore hidden LGBTQ+ histories from Torquay Museum's Collections by following The Michelangelo Trail around the galleries. The trail can be done in person or through this website by clicking on the object names above. If you're planning to visit the Museum you'll find all the objects from the trail on display. Pick up a trail sheet at Reception or download it below onto your phone/device to find the exhibits easily. 

Please note some of the LGBTQ+ terminology used in the objects above, although in use at the time, may not be appropriate to use today.

Use #TheMichelangeloTrail to share your thoughts with us on social media. 

Research for the trail was done by Will Emery (He/Him) and Iona Tytler (She/They). 

The Michelangelo Trail was supported by local LGBTQ+ organisation Proud2Be and funded by a grant from Art Fund through South West Museum Development
