Coming Out: Sexuality, Gender & Identity marks the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Sexual Offences Act 1967. This ruling partially decriminalised sex between some men, in private, in England and Wales.

This catalogue brings together art works that have been made in the years since 1967. They help tell the recent history of the LGBT+ movement and reflect how ideas about sexuality, gender and identity have changed and continue to evolve.
