Fri 6/16: Gay Secrets of the Met Museum
Friday Jun 16 6:15pm-8:15pm in New York
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!). At the end of the tour, the group will head to one of the bars that is open for Met Fridays.
