They are asking people to use #MyJourneyToPride and tag @ltmuseum to share their thoughts, photos and videos on social media. The project aims to preserve and record the personal experiences of people travelling to the parades in 2019.
The experiences of non-binary and transgender people are currently under-represented in the collection, so the museum is actively seeking to collect material that is more inclusive of all genders.
The stories shared will add to the collections currently held in London Transport Museum that represent LGBTQ+ experiences including banners, posters, photographs and the first ever rainbow crossing.
“London’s transport has a part to play in bringing people together for Pride and we want to offer a space to preserve and record the thoughts, feelings and experiences of people attending parades this year,” said Ellie Miles, Documentary Curator at London Transport Museum.
