Gay Secrets of the Metropolitan Museum

by Oscar Wilde Tours

This private, two-hour tour explores homoerotic art in the Metropolitan Museum. Led by Professor Lear, an erotic art historian, you'll discover some of the Met’s most queer treasures, from ancient Greek nudes and erotic vase paintings to homoerotic paintings from the Renaissance as well as modern works.

Highlights: Michelangelo’s Cupid and Picasso’s portrait of Gertrude Stein

The tour also delves into the history of homosexuality in other cultures, such as same-sex initiation rites in New Guinea, represented in the Met’s Oceania collection.

After this tour, you’ll never look at The Met the same way again.
