John Lewis celebrates LGBTQ+ History Month with unique exhibition

In celebration of LGBTQ+ History Month, the John Lewis London flagship in Oxford Street is hosting a free portrait photographic exhibition.

February is LGBTQ+ History Month and household British brand John Lewis is celebrating it with a unique collaboration with award-winning photographer Chris Jepson. John Lewis operates as a Partnership, with all employees having a say in its running and a share of the profits, and the Partnership includes a LGBTQ+ network, Pride in the Partnership.

Pride in the Partnership and photographer Chris Jepson are behind the exhibition “The Identity Project – JLP Edition”, which captures the diversity and stories of John Lewis' LGBTQ+ Partners in a series of portraits. The exhibition is part of Jepson's broader “The Identity Project” series, which explores what it means to identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ community today and has featured in cities around the world. 

The free-to-visit exhibition is open at the John Lewis & Partners store daily during store hours, from 10 to 29 February. Find out more here.
