Wellcome Library Insight: From Deviance to Diversity

This week's free Wellcome Library Insight session - on Thursday 15th July - explores changing attitudes to sex and gender.

Using a broad range of materials from the Wellcome Library, the session will demonstrate the gradual changes in medical and scientific understanding of sexual identity, the bringing about of changes in the law, and the development of more tolerant social attitudes.

Our Insight sessions offer visitors to the Wellcome Library an opportunity to explore the variety of our holdings. Sessions are thematic in style, last around an hour and offer a chance to learn about our collections from a member of Library staff.

This Thursday's session starts at 3pm, and tickets are available from the Wellcome Collection Information Desk from 1.30pm onwards. For more details, see the Wellcome Collection website.
