Queering the Whitworth Tour
Thursday 14 February, free.
The tour will run twice, 6pm — 7pm and 7.15pm — 8.15pm.
Booking necessary.

February is LGBT History Month, this is a national event across educational, cultural and community spaces where people come together with a shared vision for learning and talking about LGBTQ+ History and community. The month helps to facilitate and uncover hidden or ignored queer histories and helps to tell these stories.

To coincide with this, we will be running a tour that will take in eleven works from our collection, stretching from Renaissance prints to contemporary wallpaper, some of which are currently on display in our exhibitions. We will retell stories from ancient Rome, the effects on people implicated in the first public debate on homosexuality in the 1700’s, and remember forgotten artists that were once celebrated in their time.

This tour links in with our social media project #Queeringthewhitworth.
Tickets are available from 10am on 2 February. To book your ticket please follow this link: https://eventbrite.co.uk/e/queering-the-whitworth-tour-tickets-55761592424
