Writing Queer Museum Tour
Did you know Emily Dickinson was a lesbian? Well, it’s possible, at least. In this unique tour of the American Writers Museum, you’ll discover how many great works of American writing were created by LGBTQIA+ writers, who used their sexuality and gender identity as inspiration for their work. You’ll explore, in turn, how those works, and the works of heterosexual and cisgender writers, became essential pieces of contemporary queer culture.
The Writing Queer Tour is offered daily at 3:00pm when the AWM is open. We are open Thursdays to Tuesdays, from 10 am to 5 pm during the summer. We are closed Wednesdays. The tour is included with museum admission and no advanced registration is required. Tours begin at the Museum front desk.
Explore the challenges, triumphs, and drama of LGBTQIA+ writers whose sexuality and gender identities surface in their work!
