Gay-Secrets-of-Met

Event Details

  • Gay Desert Guide's Fun & Games Dept. and TheMenEvent.com present Gay Secrets of the Metropolitan Museum - A Virtual Tour
  • Learn about the secrets of LGBTQ+ history and art that are hanging, secret but in plain sight, among the Met's masterpieces.
  • Can't make the live event? Buy a ticket for the recording and watch the event in your own time! See FAQs below for more info.
  • Join us for an exploration of homoerotic art in the Metropolitan Museum. On this tour, we discover 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 paintings from the Renaissance—as well as modern works by LGBT artists portraying LGBT people.
  • We learn about famous pieces—from Caravaggio's "The Musicians" to Picasso’s portrait of Gertrude Stein—but in addition we explore lesser-known artists and works that are often ignored.
  • And we delve into the fascinating forms of homosexuality in other cultures, such as same-sex initiation rites in New Guinea, represented in the Met’s Oceania collection. It’s all part of the hidden LGBTQ story in one of the great museums of the world, which you’ll never look at the same way again.
