Our most popular GAY tour of the Met. Explore some of the Met's BEST queer treasures anciant eras to mordern times. A DO NOT MISS event!
Join us for our most popular tour of the Met. We will explore some of the Met's queer treasures, from ancient Greek nudes (and erotic vase-painting, on which Professor Lear is a world expert!) to homoerotic works from the Renaissance, and a panoply of modern works, some by LGBT artists, some portraying LGBT people, and some expressing same-sex desire. Famous artists and personalities, such as Caravaggio or Gertrude Stein, will appear-but so will lesser-known artists and works whose homoerotic charge is often ignored (including images used in homosexual initiation rites in New Guinea!).
